Long file paths

Long file paths – greater than 260 characters – have been a pain to deal with in Windows.

 

There is an argument that you should avoid file paths of that length but sometimes you don’t have any choice – when you inherit a file structure for instance.

 

The following cmdlets from the NTFSsecurity module I recently highlighted are designed to work with long file paths.

Copy-Item2
Get-ChildItem2
Get-FileHash2
Get-Item2
Move-Item2
Remove-Item2
Test-Path2

 

Hopefully, this will make dealing with long file paths easier in the future
