Path too long exception

I’m getting this exception:

The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters.

I know that this is a well known issue and have referred various posts on other forums. Need to know if someone here has already implemented any solution around this in UiPath?

It may not work for all requirements but you can use

and get filename based on the trigger (if file name is too long)

Try this dll, might be help ful if you create a simple custom activity.
