In spite of trainings about the limitations of character storage for files and paths I still have users creating excessively long paths and file names which impact our backups etc.  From the forum it looks like there is no way to restrict the path but is it possible to restrict the file name itself?  Often my users will end up with file names of the entire first sentence of a document.  Thanks

There is no GPO for restricting file length, so I don't believe this is possible.

Is no way to limit this. Only remove permissions to create folders on al folders.
