    This article is outdated, the entire path, including the file name, must contain fewer than 400 characters for OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online, and not 260. So the recommendation to set ShrinkFoldersMaxLength=200  should be updated.

    Once the file paths have been truncated, what is the experience for end users when navigating through the folders within SharePoint? Will they see the original folder names or the truncated versions?

    Hello Daniel,

    The end users would see the truncated file paths on the destination. Please keep in mind that if the user has multiple folders with the same first 10 characters under the same parent folder, these folders will be combined during the truncation.

    Hope this helps!

    Regards,

    Nicholas
