A good example of this might be something like this:
(This is a virus BTW, so don't download it).
This is by no means the worst offender I have seen (in fact it's really quite tame compared to the length of many other file names I have encountered on the emule network through the years).
This may not be 256 characters long on it's own, but add to this the depth of the default location of my Downloads folder: C:\Users\user1\Downloads\eMule and the fact that my own habit is to right click on a compressed folder and select 'extract to' and accept the suggested folder name, this would result in a path as follows:
C:\Users\user1\Downloads\eMule\Mp3 Song Polyphonic Ringtones - Lionel Richie Christina Aguilera Snow Patrol Luny Tunes & Tainy Carrie Underwood Lupe Fiasco Various Artists\Mp3 Song Polyphonic Ringtones - Lionel Richie Christina Aguilera Snow Patrol Luny Tunes & Tainy Carrie Underwood Lupe Fiasco Various Artists
Which is well in excess of the 256 character limit. (Particularly when you add in the often quite long names of the individual files inside the zip or rar archives themselves).
You could say 'why not adjust our behaviour?' Well firstly because on 70% of occasions accepting the default folder name to extract to supplied by winrar (and other compression software) works perfectly fine. However it is that other 30% which is a royal pain in the butt. Secondly I think his is a good idea because many of the file names on the network are often completely stupidly long - and there would be no harm in cleaning them up. Crazy long file names that have been tagged by just about everyone who ever downloaded them are a real pet hate of mine, as I spend a large proportion of my time renaming them anyway. Thirdly, doing this might cause what clearly must be some quite unaware and uneducated kind of people to think much more carefully when naming (or renaming) their files in the future. So overall the network benefits too.
Anyway as I said, it's just a thought.
