But by keeping that old myth alive (stating unconditionally that "The max length of a filepath is 260 characters", with no reservation, like an absolute truth), you contribute to the problem. Lots of programmers believe that as long as they allocate a 261 char buffer for the file name, they are safe and can handle all the paths there are.

But they cannot. Windows software can create longer paths, as the OP experienced.

I would much prefer to make a reference to the long filenames, and add a warning: Beware that if the path exceeds 260 char, then software using old FAT oriented calls to obtain the file path might fail.

Trying to keep the solution to the problem secret, because some programmers is not aware of it, is no good way to bring the world forward. In my eyes, that is.

Religious freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make five.
