File Search not working for files in long paths

  • Hi guys,

    I’m having trouble using the File Search when the files are located within long paths (got one example where the folder path alone is 237 characters long). These files are omitted from the search results, although I know they should show.

    On the other hand, I can open those files, but the path in notepad++'s windows shows those Windows crop style like “C:\AAAAAA~1\BBBBBB~1…” and so on. There are no problem with file permissions, I also tried to execute npp as administrator but got the same problem.

    Any ideas of what is going on?

    Notepad++ v7.8.2 (64-bit)
    Build time : Dec 4 2019 - 01:39:49
    Path : C:\Program Files\notepad++\notepad++.exe
    Admin mode : ON
    Local Conf mode : OFF
    OS Name : Windows 10 Enterprise (64-bit)
    OS Version : 1709
    OS Build : 16299.1508
    Plugins : mimeTools.dll NppConverter.dll NppExport.dll
