  • Hi, 

    This limit is related to NTFS. 

    Besides, we could take use of Windows FeedBack Tools to submit issues that we encountered, also the suggestions.

    Updates and feedback

    Further, for name and path length, see reference:

    Naming Files, Paths, and Namespaces

  • Why you want it to support long path?

    There are some technical issues behind this so it has limitation set.

    However, you may use Windows Feedback App and share your feedback.
