Why does Sharefile allow the users to use file-names that are above the 180 character limit? It should warn or even prevent them from proceeding when the try to create the file-name.

I second that. There should be some sort of warning or notification that lets you know that your path length exceeds the allowed limit.. Is this something SF devs might be able to implement?

I agree as well, why not just lengthen the file name limit. everyone else is around 250 upload and download. syncplicity, varonis, gladinet, owncloud, dropbox enterprise, egnyte, box.net. Seriously, If I didn't already spend money on my licenses I would switch products. Its really hurting my company.
