The protected-mode FAT file system allows file names of up to 256 
characters, including the terminating null character. In this regard, it 
is similar to NTFS, the file system that allows file names of up to 256 
characters. Protected-mode FAT allows directory paths (excluding the 
file name) of up to 246 characters, including the drive letter, colon, 
and leading backslash. This limit of 246 allows for the addition of a 
file name in the standard 8.3 format with the terminating null 
character. The maximum number of characters in a full path, including 
the drive letter, colon, leading backslash, file name, and terminating 
null character, is 260.
