long filenames RRS feed

  • Question

  • Any possiblity of improving an already outstanding tool, by extending the maximum length of filenames, including pathnames, supported by SyncToy? I use long names for folders. 512, or even 1024 bytes, would be great.

    A heartfelt Bravo Zulu (a little Navy lingo, for outstanding) to the development team.

  • Thanks for the recognition - I will pass it on to the dev team.

    SyncToy uses the FileSync provider which in turn uses file system APIs, which unfortunately have this limitation. Currently we do not have plans to overcome this limit in the next release, but we will consider it for future ones.
