Filenames being truncated

Hello, thank you for your help in advance. I am experiencing an issue where it seems as if SongKong is truncating the filenames.

I’m not sure if there is something that I have changed erroneously or if there is a bug. I do have the file character limit set at 255 but it doesn’t seem that this would be the issue.

I would greatly appreciate any help.

With best wishes,


The Enable Maximum File Path Length applies to the complete path, so I think that is the issue. If you count the length of the complete path I think you will find it is 255 and that is why SongKong had to shorten the filename. We usually shorten from the front rather than the end because the end of the filename usually stores the title whereas the front is more likely to store the artist or album title, therefore we try to keep the part most useful for differentiating
