In Teapac, there appears to be a limit of only 64 characters allowed in the directory path and file name. However, our network directory structure always exceeds this limit. As a result, I first work off my hard disk, then later have to move my work to the network for file backup purposes. When I need to work on these files again, I have to pull them from the network and save them back to my hard disk. Not a big deal but I just wanted to find out if there's anyway I can change the 64 character limit.

Cade,

On the network machine, right click the folder you want to use from across the network and select Sharing... then click SharedAs and provide a SharedName. Now on the machine across the network use the Tools menu of Explorer to select Map Network Drive and enter this SharedName as the Path for an available Drive. Now you can use that Drive name instead of your entire path. This should do it for you.
