MAX_PATH path length limit support

Postby Hanson » Sun Feb 11, 2018 6:12 pm

As we know, Windows OS (including the latest version of Windows 10) has the 260 character MAX_PATH path length limit.

Exceeding this limit causes various problems for built-in Windows functionalities and 3rd party applications.

It seems that client connected to Wing FTP SFTP server can't create directories with paths exceeding this 260 character limit.

Wing FTP produces such error in log file (0000068) SSH_FXP_STATUS: Internal error when creating the directory.

Does Wing FTP support paths longer than 260 character MAX_PATH limit?

If not, would it be possible to implement such feature?

OK, the file path length is limited by Windows system, so you can google something about "Let Windows accept file path over 260 characters".
