Long File Names

Post by Cormorin » 18 May 2018 15:54


New here.....!

how do i search for files that have filenames [paths] greater than 260 chars ?

I know you can highlight them but it means finding them in the first place.

I don't understand... You just search for them like for any other file?

Or do you mean that one segment of the path exceeds 255 chars? Even a lot of Windows API functions fail on such parts...
Even when used with the \\?\ prefix...

Configuration | General | Controls and More | Miscellaneous | [x] Support overlong filenames
needs to be checked ofc

If I am understanding you properly you should just be able to input this in the address bar:

Code: Select all

?len: > 260
in the root of the location you want to search.
