Description

Windows 10 now supports paths longer than MAX_PATH for compatible applications: http://stackoverflow.com/a/27694470/1032586 (without using "unsafe" UNC paths, like discussed here

It would be nice to add this "longPathAware" feature to FileZilla.

Does Windows Explorer have this flag set yet? It's a necessary prerequisite, otherwise FileZilla will create files users cannot work with outside of FileZilla.

Unfortunately - no. At least for 15063.0.170317-1834. (But there's a lot of 3rd party apps that do allow to browsing such files. Just like there's a bunch of web browsers which do support some things, not supported by windows built-in web browsers.).

OK, hope they would add long paths support to windows file explorer soon.
