Fix 1024 character pathname limit

Hello,

There is a current known issue with Data Protector v9.x (not sure about 10.x) where pathnames longer than 1024 characters cannot be backed up by a client/disk agent backup and the following minor error is generated in the logs:

[Minor] From: VBDA@server "server [/E]" Time: 4/9/2018 7:28:42 PM

      Cannot back up files with a pathname longer than 1024 characters!

A patch or hotfix to resolve the above issue would be beneficial as it can be difficult to control/find where these long pathname / folder structures exist and change them.

Thanks,

Steve
