I use Boxcryptor in conjunction with a network “cloud” folders (Dropbox), under Windows 7.
It is known that encrypted file names (or folder names) created by Boxcryptor have more characters than the original file names. So, especially for the deeper folders, an encrypted filename could easily exceed the Windows limit of 256 characters although the original filename is shorter than 256.
For that reason, some files that are correctly synchronized through internet over the “cloud” when are in original form, fails the synchronization when are in the encrypted form.
Because I like Boxcryptor, I wonder:
-why Boxcryptor doesn’t show any warning when filename in Windows environment exceed that limit?
-why Boxcryptor hasn’t any option that can set a limit to crypted file or folder name length? Others similar tools offer this…
