Thanks for the suggestion.
We are trying to migrate staff from file servers to SharePoint, but the OneDrive sync mechanism adds 70 characters to the file path and thus ends thousands of files over MAXPATH which means they won't sync properly.
Shortcomings in OneDrive and SharePoint file handling are forcing us to use IE FIle Explorer views ... and when you add this issue into the mix, it's like Microsoft is painting us into a corner with different system limitations.

Just noticed this with Office365 in a University license. We have files generated with scientific names which need the commas to make sense.
The version history screenshot on https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/blog/2017/07/19/expanding-onedrive-version-history-support-file-types/ shows a file with multiple versions over a 5-month period.
On the same page it says "OneDrive will keep an older version of your files for 30 days. "
How do you reconcile these two descriptions of OneDrive versioning behaviour?
