Re: Does Win 8 support long path names?

This has been supported in windows since at least Windows 95.  Certainly XP or later should have full and complete ability to use long path names in all parts of the file system and UI.  Xcopy, Explorer, or built in backup in Windows (xp -> 8) all support long paths by default.

I suspect your problems are related to some utility or backup system that is not using long path names correctly.  Perhaps you could explain your process and where the problems are showing up?
