Backup, path, file name, limits


During the data upload you may see an error "The specified path, file name, or both are too long" or "The maximum file name limit or path length is exceeded".

Suggestions and Resolutions

Here you can find the limits for the entire path and file names. For all operating systems that are supported by Cloudberry:

<style type="text/css"> .tg {border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;margin:0px auto;} .tg td{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:1px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg th{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:normal;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:1px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg .tg-yw4l{vertical-align:top} </style>
Limit for Windows Mac/Linux
entire path 4096 bytes unlimited
file name 255 bytes 255 bytes

For some cloud storage providers the entire path and/or file names length might be limited individually.
