Backupper "The file has been skipped because its source path is too long"

My backups keep missing most of my files because it says, "The file has been skipped because its source path is too long." What does it want? I use regular Windows 10 file paths.

    But obviously too long (too deep) if you add up all the pathnames and filename: C\path1\path2\path3\path4\filename.ext

    I don't know the exact max allowed length, probably in the range 250-255 characters or so.


  • Same here. Using longer paths can't be avoided when developing and the packages are structured or nested that deep. Please remove that restriction, it is 2018. Windows can handle this.
