    Hi all,

    First of all, thanks to KSH for this great game !

    But, me and my friends are experiencing an annoying "bug" :

    The backups of our dedicated server won't work properly (since the last update?), only the two first files are copied : "Alien-612...000.vx2" and Asteroid_4_4...996.vx2"
    So seeing this, we have tried to manually copy the third file who is : "Earthlike-50....0-0.vx2" complete name here : https://gyazo.com/1450d9ba16f6a747ed59e1a5d89cff2a, and we had the "filename too long" error from Windows 10 (255 caract). Screenshot : https://gyazo.com/16b304907c72ef8d3a50b46778547f82 :(

    - We have tried to enable longfilesnames with gpedit.msc : no success
    - Delete some "0" from the file : no success, really ? :D
    - Modify <LoadWorld> option in the SpaceEngineers-Dedicated.cfg, for something like this : <LoadWorld>C:\SEBackups\World Dedicated</LoadWorld
    but the server was still loading the world in the %appdata% folder... :(

    [Edit] : Maybe another interesting information : We launch our server with -console argument

    Any Ideas ? Thanks and sorry for bad english :p

    You can try "Long Path Tool" program that fixes file name too long issues effectively.
