Re: How many characters can be in a folder or file name in Win 7?

I've yet to run into a character limit with filenames in Win7, unlike previous versions of Windows. And as Michal indicated, spaces are allowed.

Hi,

I'm planning some hard drive folder / file management.

How long can folder names and file names be in Windows 7? Are spaces permitted?

Thanks in advance, Keith
