Re: Long File Path support

- I was not talking about Windows apps in general, but the File Explorer application that ships with Windows.

- Applications written for other OSes commonly make files with paths that exceed 260 chars, why should Windows users be unable to handle those files ?

e.g. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/37880447/file-path-too-long-on-windows

- I have not heard a file's path called its "Metadata" before.
