I am having some troubles with end-users creating deep folder structures (>255 chars) which then cause a number of issues, primarily related to backing up of those structures. I also understand many 3rd party apps have difficulties with similarly deep paths and I would like to prevent this from occurring.
Can anyone suggest a way that this can be done? We have approximately 40 Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 file-servers that I'd like to apply this to.
As a secondary question, does anyone have a tool that would help identify existing offending deep paths and export to CSV/other for discussion with the end-users/management?
