Maximum path length

Hi,

Windows 2003 seems to have a limit of 256 character maximum path length.

Is there a way to increase this. Please suggest.

Thanks & Regards,

Re: Maximum path length

A trick will work.

Cut small things and put them in different variables.
Now in the path use those variables.

Re: Maximum path length

Hi,

I am not worried about the path environment variable.

My concern is about the file path length. For example in the below directory, I will not abe able to create a file named abcdefgh.txt using notepad. I get the error "The system cannot find the path specified.", because the directory path along with the filename would exceed 260 characters.

Please suggest.
