File Character\file path limit ?



Does Novell or Arcserve genaral have a file character limit or file path
file name limit ?

eg something like below is what we are having problems with:

g:\this is my home directory\this is where i keep my documents\this is
work related\post july 2004 work documents that have been worked on\july
2004 tax return statement that has been completed.doc

We are using Arcserve 9.01 to backup files and are have issues with long
file names and very long file paths (more than 168 characters). CA say
there is no know issue with Arcserve.

I know Windows complains if it exceeds 255 characters.

Can someone point me to somthing official from Microsoft\Novell\CA that
can support if it doe sor doesn't have a limit ?

Much Appreciated,
Hermes Panagio
