#9987 closed defect (wontfix)

Upload and File Synchronization Anomalies with excessive folder file path lengths.

Reported by: mdgoff Owned by: mdgoff
Priority: normal Milestone: 6.1.0
Component: webdav Version: 6.0.4
Severity: normal Keywords: folder file path
Cc: Architecture: Intel
Platform: Windows 7


Create a folder path with multiple sub-folders and file with a combined excessive length e.g., >256 characters. A file is located in the last folder in the path. Select File Synchronization and start mirror comparison and upload to webdav destination folder. File synchronization completes without a warning. Only some portion of folders are created and the file is not uploaded. I suggest that a warning should be thrown at the time of comparison with either an option to ignore or that part of the request is ignored and logged.

Select the same folder set and choose Upload. A warning that the file is not found is provided. Click Continue and a similar subset of the folders in the excessive path are created without uploading the file. I suggest an option to ignore the file and folder path or that part of the request is ignored and logged.

  • Milestone set to 6.1
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

We cannot fix this issue of path lengths on Windows but from what I understand it is better to give an error alert than to silently ignore the failure reading the file for upload.
