New MAXPATH limits in SharePoint and OneDrive
Last month we announced support for # and % across SharePoint and OneDrive (https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/wbaer/2017/04/06/new-support-for-and-in-sharepoint-online-and-onedrive-for-business/) and now in addition to adding support for # and % we’re also increasing MAXPATH or otherwise SharePoint and OneDrive’s Url path length restrictions from 256 Unicode code units to 400. This new limit section applies to the total length of the URL path to a folder or a file in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business but not to the length of any parameters.
