Syncthing + Cryptomator (filenames to long?)

(Pazuu) #1

Hey everybody, i would like to ask whether someone is experiencing any similar issue? One of three via syncthing connected devices (device 1 running Ubuntu 18.04) tells me, that the filenames are too long (Cryptomator files) and the other two devices (device 2 - Ubuntu 18.04 as well and device 3 - Android 6.0) show this:


I asked as well in the Cryptomator Forum:

p.s.: Thank you so much for your work and this absolutely awesome sync tool! :blush:

It’s a limitation of the filesystem, not one imposed by syncthing.

Dito. Using both linux (desktop) machines running ext4 fs I had no problem testing this with ecryptFS.

Thank you both for the answers! So Androids Filesystem would be the problem?

Yes I think so as most sdcard’s are still formatted FAT32.


… or exFAT. But only if they are used as portable storage. If they are used as “internal” storage, they are formatted with ext4 (afaik).
