Is there any way around the 260 max character length for files/filepath in OneDrive? File names become longer when they are encrypted.
Unfortunately there is no way to shorten the length of an encoded name. Each filename is encrypted into byte form and then encoded to string form.
This will add some overhead to the final output.
Our encoding method adds 33% to the final result. We have looked into using different methods of encoding but we have found our current method to be the best for foreign language support (UTF8).
User will have to turn off file name encryption if he or she was to retain the same path length.
Please be certain to note that if you disable filename encryption it could cause file errors and possible duplicate files.
If you wish to disable file name encryption after you have already saved folders and files to your SafeCrypt drive, please back them up and then delete them from your drive prior to changing the File Name Encryption settings.
This is strictly a OneDrive limitation and not a SafeCrypt limitation.
