[1.2.420] File path length limit

Post by C5685 » Thu Dec 28, 2017 11:59 pm

Hello!
When running OpenStack Swift 1.2.420 (2014/07/07) against OVH Cold Storage, I get the following error:

[OpenStackSwift] Backup job [Backups para Cloud] skipped folder xpngfybae3j225mcaz3k4bbyyldvvbfe7pslc6g5wml3hjxq3b3eefjihytv2z3schkevvt6f4ccyndgol7mmlgojapxlb3j6twfveblc3bu4q2nzg2v3y5x54gzyuv4q4qt35ya3imwfrsbh772y6apri2uskht7qeevm4skzjm23jims5ptksr63esh6sdtguo7p3bh6zrff6lifwmme3anenlj7mc74mjo5njgivn3hfh2unkqij3qv because the path length is more than 246 bytes.


What kind of limitation is this? I didn't set up any filter, or exclusion, etc.

Is there any fix to this? Or am I doing something wrong?

Windows 10 Anniversary Edition and later and Windows Server 2016 both now support paths greater than 260 characters.

Hopefully other products will start supporting longer path and file names.

So, bots are still posting about the long path tool? :roll:

hum? i'm unsure if this is a limitation of OVH's openstack or the QNAP client.

I suspect it is the QNAP since other clients such as Cloudberry Backup Desktop doesn't have this problem
