Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Need detection / warning on filenames too long

I have just discovered CutTools (v2.0.9) and am very pleased to have it.

In the interest of making it better, here's a serious problem I encountered and what I hope is a simple fix.  For a combination of reasons, splitting a large FLAC resulted in one file not being extracted.  I'm pretty sure this is because the total path + filename was too long for Windows.

The problem is that CT didn't show any warning that one file had been skipped.  I deleted the big FLAC before I realized that and so can't recover.

==>  I suggest that CT warn whenever the OS fails to create a file that CT has requested.  If this can't be done, a fallback might be for CT to check afterwards to see if there were as many files created as the cue sheet called for.

Thanks for a great tool.
