Hi There,

Is there a way in Autoit or vbs to locate full file/dir length more that 256 of whole vol. and output to a file(txt)?

Please advise. Thanks

You need to do a recursive search function to list every file, using StringLen() to check the length of the path string. Do you have any code yet? There are many examples of recursive searches on the forum.

Oh. I want to scan for a file server and check for files/directory that are more that 255 in total length of the path...if not if I do a copy on those files to another NAS it will fail.

Here is _FileListToArrayEx() by SmOke_N.

This is _RegSearch() by some rakishly good looking flightless antarctic water fowl.

They both demonstrate a recursive technique, and there are MANY more examples on this forum.

Between the two, you could tweak SmOke_N's the easiest to return only files where StringLen($FilePath) > 256.
