I found this article a few weeks ago that provided a way to access files and folders past the 260 char length:
I put the code from "Finding Files and Folders" in a dll and wrote an app in vb accessing these functions.ÃÂ However, the code randomly breaks on a specific kernel32 function call.ÃÂ
I noticed that if the search finds a file (not folder) longer than 12 to 14 characters then it breaks on occasion.ÃÂ This is strange because I would think it would either never break or always break.
Here's the line where it breaks:
// find next
found = FindNextFile(findHandle, out findData);
