In the blog “Blog / Cryptomator 1.6.0: What You Need to Know” the developer wrote wrote in the paragraph Update Guide
“When you decide to update, there is one last issue you need to check beforehand: If you ever manually altered the setting file filenameLengthLimit for a vault in the settings.json file, these modifications will be lost after the update and will be ignored if simply copied back. A guide to migrate in this setting will be published soon.”
Are there any new findings? Has anybody already tried that?
I would like to update, but don’t dare to because I have thousands of files on a server that only allows file name lengths of 128 characters.
Thanks for tips or instructions.
Welcome to the Cryptomator Community ,
my first question is: Do you ever altered the setting manually?
If not, you don’t have anything to fear from my point of view.
Regarding the guide: It is in the works, but not yet finished. ETA is end of this month.
Sorry if I haven’t made this clear. Yes of course I have set the corresponding entries in the settings.json file by hand to the file length of 128 characters!
This is because I upload a cryptomator directory to a provider that only accepts files and folders with a maximum length of 128 characters.
But because everything is working satisfactorily so far, I’ll be happy to wait until the end of the month.
Many thanks for your help!
