Since Live File Backup enables to restore the backuped files even without the program at any time via Windows Explorer, there are restrictions on the maximum path length of the files to be backed up if these are well over 200 characters (general limitation of path length of Windows Explorer).
The path of the backup directory (target) and the path/filename of a file to be backed up (source) may contain a maximum of 238 characters. Otherwise Live File Backup skips the backup of the corresponding file because the saved file would then no longer be accessible in Windows Explorer. It is therefore advisable to keep the path of the backup directory (target) as short as possible, e.g. “L:\Backup”. From version 2.44, Live File Backup warns with an optional message and an entry in the log if this situation occurred during the backup.
