Copy files with long filepaths
« on: July 27, 2011, 23:19:31 »

Is it possible to use MC to copy files to location that cause the filepath to be more than 253 characters long (or whatever the limit is)?

Internally MC supports paths up to 4096 characters.

Support for long paths are limited. It works in some places and some don't. Multi Commander is using 3th party code for a lot of things. Like for example archives like 7zip, rar and so on, and they might have problem with long path. It has not been tested

The main functions have only been limited tested with long paths. when working with files on local harddrive.
