I am using your program (currently version DOpusInstall-12.10-beta-x64) only because it supports more than 256 characters.
A file must not be longer than 255 characters (see https://resource.dopus.com/t/rename-a-file-with-more-than-256-chars-in-its-name/27509), but there are still problems copying and moving files with (only) 232 characters if the number of characters in the filename + the number of characters in the path are longer than 255 characters.
"C:\TEMP! short-temp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TEST with NEW VERSION DOPUS -" copy or move !!!!!"
I created a text file with the name
"18-09-21¦10.46¦ --» AAAAAAAAA Bbbbbb - concerning 2016 KÜ- CCCCCCCCC - Abcdef aaa bbbbbbb cccccccccc 7th edition § 313 Rn 87,111,169,170, -- AW ABBBBBBBB Ccccccccc Dddddddddd m Eeeeeeeeeeee Fffff -WG HERE 18-09-19¦17.44¦--"SS-Eeeeeeeee-v02-mÄM.txt".
If I "copy" this file in the same directory, this file will not be copied, but the original file will be renamed to "18-09-~1.TXT". When I update the directory, the name of the original file appears again (Attention: on the first attempt this file was even DELETED!), but it was NOT copied.
If I copy this file into a subdirectory "copy-Dir", the file there will only get the name
"18-09-~1.TXT" (even after update).
When moving the file
"18-09-21¦10.46¦ --» AAAAAAAAA Bbbbbb - concerning 2016 KÜ- CCCCCCCCC - Abcdef aaa bbbbbbb cccccccccc 7th edition § 313 Rn 87,111,169,170, -- AW ABBBBBBBB Ccccccccc Dddddddddd m Eeeeeeeeeeee Fffff -WG HERE 18-09-19¦17.44¦--"SS-Eeeeeeeee-v02-mÄM.txt"
into the subdirectory "copy-Dir" it works IN THIS CASE (the long file name is displayed in the target directory). But I already had the opposite problem in other directories: While moving the short file name "18-09-~1.TXT" came up, but copying worked correctly.
If I remember correctly, these problems didn't exist in DOpus12.6. In version 12.6 I had only noticed the problem described at https://resource.dopus.com/t/rename-a-file-with-more-than-256-chars-in-its-name/27509, but according to Jon's comment this was (also) due to the number of characters in the filename and from that point on I didn't give more than 256 characters to a filename.
As described, since some updates copying and moving files with less than 255 characters doesn't work either.
But maybe I don't really remember this anymore, because I wrote back then:
"Jon, thanks (good link!). But the problem IT'S NOT ONLY the file Name length BUT ALSO about path lengths including folders (AND/ WITH long file names, too)."
This might not only be a huge problem for me.
I would be very, very grateful for fixing this bug.
Thx. & Best regards
