I am a user on a SharePoint site, my project is being asked to migrate all files from Windows Explorer to SP.
We are not using subfolders because the migration team said there is a limitation of 255 characters for the file path. This restriction seems odd to me because my not so casual observation of web sites is that you can have VERY long URL's. I realize that the back end is Sql Server, so that must account for the 255 char limitation.
For example, here is a path on the site, 263 chars,
So this file is on the site and it's more than 255 chars? Where does the limitation come into play?
