Limiting the length of a file name in Dapper


There are two hidden settings to allow you to limit the total length of a file name that will be saved to your DAP.




You can set these by opening a terminal (Applications->Utilities->Terminal) and then typing:

Shut down Dapper

defaults write longestFileName -int 254

defaults write longestComponent -int 100

Launch Dapper again
