I can rename a file >340 characters without any problem,
i.e. in my opinion there must be a problem with the file name.

- What is your total path length? (path + filename)
- Which Everything version?
- Which Windows version?

Thank you!

You are already using Windows 11 - probably that is the problem...

I absolutely hate windows 11, regretted the minute I upgraded.

Thanks anyway.

I have only just watched the video more closely.

When renaming, Everything tells you the following:
Do you want to rename "2.pdf" to "1 (2).pdf"?
After clicking on the "Yes" button, the file should be renamed to "1 (2).pdf".
However, this does not happen, instead, the error message appears.

Windows 11 didn't cause this problem. Because I still experience this after I reinstalled windows 10.

Have you tried zipping the file?

Whats happened to me on several occasions is that I've copied and pasted a file name and got the illegal character message. I found that zipping it up and typing the filename of the newly compressed file works.

I use Win 7.

The other way I found was to copy the file and rename the copy but type the name in manually, don't paste it.

Yes, you are right and unfortunately I was wrong (I wrongly suspected Windows 11 as the originator). :oops:

After that, however, the user ovg and I realized almost at the same time that the fault is with Everything.

I use a file copying programme which overrides Windows and when it finds a conflict it gives me the option to overwrite or keep both versions of the file.
It also verifies the file.

Yes, but that's not what this topic is about.
This is a bug report that has now been confirmed by 2 other users.

Everything 1.5.0.1271a fixes an issue with the generated new filename from a rename collision.

Everything was not including the full path with the newly generated filename.
