Subject Re: [classlib] Warning - our long paths can be a problem for WinXP
Date Thu, 20 Jul 2006 07:33:54 GMT
FYI, from http://linuxboxadmin.com/articles/filefriction.php :

Windows file names can be up to 255 characters, but that includes the  
full path.
A lot characters are wasted if the default storage location is used:
"C:\Documents and Settings\USER\My Documents\".

Regards, David.
