Apr 19, 2017I take all these errors are in the context of archiving deleted items?
If so, there is a couple of things you can do to shorten the paths -
1. You can use a custom name for the $Archive folder. Something like just "A", so it will add just 2 symbols to the path. This is controlled by the following entry in backup's settings.ini -
Make sure to exit the app before manually changing any INI from the app's config, because INI files are read only on launch and re-created on exit and in run-time. To locate settings.ini for the job - right-click on the job in main list and select Open Folder > Configuration & Logging
2. You can prevent bvckup2 from adding (date/time) to the archived items names. This is done by clearing the following variable in settings.ini -
If you've enabled archiving of _modified_ files, then you will also need to clear
Obviously, this will set you up for potential name collisions when a file is deleted, re-created and deleted again at source. If you need a workaround for this, let me know.
All in all though... "For English the limit is 143 while for Asian the limit is 43 characters." - ouch, that's quote a bit of restriction.
