What problems are you having backing up long filenames?

Hello,

do you have problem with long file names or problems with file names with spaces and other special signs in it?

Well, in that case: it's a training-issue. I'm not aware of any
artificial limitations that you can put on file-name lengths.

Just ask them not to do it.

Hello,

I hav had some problem with shell scripts (backup and moving files) and spaces in file names. Tip: You must change the IFS variable and use quoting!
