Increase full path length limitation

Post by treb » 03 Dec 2015, 15:34

Hello
working with network shares (on some servers) usually means to have deep and long path structure and it is very annoying to see that Altap Salamander has limitation on the length:

In this case the full path has 217 characters ...

This is a sysytem limitation. See MaxPath for more info.
Keep in mind that unicode characters take a few bytes more space, so the limit can be exhuasted quicker.
