We're using UNISON to back up a Windows/cygwin server using SSH to a FreeBSD machine.  One folder has many subfolders and file names that are too long.  Changing file and folder names is not an option.  UNISON fails to mirror this folder, with an error indicating that the file name is too long.  Is there a way to use UNISON to back up this directory, but have it use the Windows 8.3 filenames instead of the long ones the users have created?
