Thats cool and everything, but I want to be able to go past the C# limit on
path size. So while that was informative, it doesn't really answer my
question. On Windows apparently you can call an API function and use "\\?\"
as a prefix and have a path length of 32,767 or even have it unbounded in
some cases.
