have test more..

if i drag&drop this one file only then it works..
but if i drag&drop a bunch of files and this pack contain only ONE with a very long filename
then its notwork - only first entry is loaded


as example has fail
Path:
M:\Musik\!\Electronic.sa\Prins_Thomas-The_Movement_Of_The_Free_Spirit-STS300-WEB-2018-MOHAWK

filename:
21-prins_thomas-bit_of_garden__cold_out__andromeda_(basic_idjut_version)__the_past_(version_by_studio)__andromeda_(mixed)-47f41cb5.mp3

PS.
have found a file drag & drop not work i drag&drop it only ...
filename:
13-prins_thomas-b_(sun_araw_saddle_soap_remix)__arthurs_return_(long_unreleased)__introspection__leipziger_love_life_(ancient_mix)__part_4_(voice)_(mixed)-32df889f

must rename it.. then convert . then rename back

strange - windows cant rename it..
must rename the path instead
yes rename of path to single character - convert - rename back is working

have test it with Foobar..
same error.. seams to be a general error in windows

Thanks for the further info. I will try it out. There should not be difference when you add one or more long filenames at once but I will try it out with the same filenames you have.

Windows Explorer used to have 260 character path limit. Starting in Windows 10, version 1607, you can enable long paths by default.

Max filename length is 255 characters.
Max path length is 32000 characters

i use windows 10 x64 v1809 DE
does activating the longpath feature slow down the drivespeed?
why its not default?

Long file paths do not slow down drive speed.

I guess Microsoft has not yet enabled the long paths by default for compatibility reasons.

I will test the drag and drop behavior with the long file paths.

have found this feature
in Win Pro it exist a switch in Group Policies or via Registry in Home too
- but its only for Win32 Programs or Windows Store Apps

btw directly explorer item drap & drop produce lower errors
then drap & drop from search-result-list in explorer
strange
