File Search not working for files in long paths

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?

I suggest you Long Path Tool will let you easily
delete, copy or rename long path files, you can try it
for better service.
