The 32768 is the total character limit. As I said, if using NTFStoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
(which is the default for hard drives) each level of the file system
is limited to 256 characters but there is also a total limit of 32768
characters, that total limit includes any leading drive specifier and
all path separators (the "c:\"and the '\' characters).
That 32768 character limit also applies if you are doing something on
the network and there it includes machine and share names.
IEFoexample you might have a network path like:
Such a path cannot exceed 32768 characters in total length. Honestly,
I would be very scared if you ever got anywhere close to that length.
