You are unable to 'edit online' a MS Office document whose path length is greater than 255 characters

    Details

      Description

      You are unable to 'edit online' a MS Office document whose path length is greater than 255 characters.

      I know this MAX_PATH limitation is associated with the Windows file re-director, however, could you see if we can workaround the issue on Alfresco side?

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1. In a site's doclib, create a folder and its sub-folders so that the path length to the end MS Office document (e.g. a word file) is longer than 255 characters.
      2. Click 'edit online' of the word document created above.

      Expected Result:
      Users should be able to edit the word document online.

      Actual Result:
      It displays attached warning message and doesn't open the word document for editing.
