    Exclamation Vault 2016 - File check-in file names too long

    Good day.

    I have a problem where, when I check in files to Vault from Outlook or elsewhere, the file name ends up being too long.
    • The check in process gives me no warning to say that the file name is too long.
    • It doesn’t even give me the option to give the file a smaller name during check-in.


    Instead, I only find out when I try to open the file later.
    • But when I get to that point, I can’t even rename the file, to correct the problem – it gives me the same error.
    • I end up, unable to do anything to the file, except try delete it - and it still gives an error message then.


    Please tell me the best way to prevent this from happening, or at least a workaround.
    If there is a setting that prevents outlook from prefixing attachments with their parent email’s subject, I would be grateful to know about this and where to find it - AutoDesk help files are not incredibly helpful.

    Hello,

    I had the same problem. I didn´t know what to do so I searched on the internet for some solutions.

    And I read about Long Path Tool, which is a great tool in these type of cases.

    It worked really well. Hope it works for you too
