Our terminal server users are constantly naming files with names that exceed the long file path name limit which then prevents users from accessing or moving the file. We are currently only able to react to the issue after the naming has taken place, are there any proactive solutions that prevents or warns users when they attempt to name a file which will then exceed the long file path name limit.

Has anyone created any Powershell scripts which have resolved the above issue?
