Note:

Mac OS allows to name a file only upto 255 characters. Any name more than that is not accepted. And there are cases when due to naming conventions, the name of a particular PST file may exceed this predefined range of Mac OS.

The software automatically detects such email files and renames them accordingly. In addition to prevent any confusion, a separate folder is used to store these files.



If such files exist after conversion, you can view LongFilePath.csv for its destination location. These files will be present in a folder named CDTPL.
