I understand that NTFS has a 32k character limit, however windows API only supports 255 characters.
I was reading that server 2012 was to do away with the 255 character limit and embrace NTFS 32k limit. What I am finding when creating a long path name in windows 2012 RC build 8400 is that I get a warning about long path names at about 255. I am using the
VHD that MS supplied for the consumer.
The path is c:\\<long name>\<long name>\<long name>\. If the <long name> is equal to 245 that is the end of the game. Once "c:\\<long name>\..." equals 255 that is the end of the game.
