Whether 255 or 260, yes, I'm sure that's what's triggering the message. I'd even be happy to locate everything over 240 (just in case the length is temperature sensitive. ;) )
|try doing a windows file name search for all files with more than 255 characters using filename wildcarding: |
|?...(for a total of 255 consecutive question marks)...?* |
Intriguing idea... worth a shot.
I don't offhand understand how I'd use chkdsk.exe to find a long file.
