I believe this is a windows error and not an issue with Scrivener. However, because Scrivener can allow for export paths that trigger this limitation, I am hoping that there is some way the export process can isolate the files that could not be exported (much in the same way that a sync error highlights errors) so that the files whose paths names are creating this issue can be saved in a higher level folder.
