    G'day all
    Please help
    The organization I work for a problem with then users and long file names.
    We have constant issues with users creating directory structure that go 20
    deep and file names that are a kilometre long. Doesn't matter how much I try
    and educate our moron users (oops did I type that out loud) that they are
    risking our data integrity they will not voluntarily adhere to any limits or
    modify their behaviour and then scream blue murder when they can't access
    their file.
    Nice requests and attempted education by IT etc is not working can some
    suggest a solution that enforces reasonable limits?

    I would recommend you to use the Long Path Tool. I'm sure, it will sort out your issue.
