Re: How to change File Pathname character limitations in Windows 7?

There are no way by which you can fix the same this is inbuilt process of the Windows which allow only the 248 character for the path limit of the limit. And total path plus filename limit is 260 character. But this limitation is for the Windows Vista / Windows 7 /Windows Server 2008. Another then this have different file limit. Thats all i can help you with this. Thank you

Same thing even i want to share that this is not possible if you. If you are using the Windows XP /2003 then the path+ Filename limit is to the 255 Character which is fixed no one can change that. This differ withe operating system you are using if you are using Windows 2000 then this limit is set to the Path+Filename limit is 254 Characters. Which is lesser then the Windows XP. Thats it!!!!!!!!
