Directory not created

The program does not create some folders for some urls. For example:

It should be generated, this path:

And these two files inside the directory:

But what happens is that three files are created within the directory "C:\download\\quimica\":

Note: for other urls as extensive as these the pages are saved correctly.

Can someone help me?

Windows has limitation of 260 symbols per every filename including the full path. To overcome this, Offline Explorer truncates too long filenames to shorter ones and adds a unique sequence of symbols at the end to ensure files are different.

I am only interested to see why even longer URLs were saved without being truncated. Can you please give me some examples?

Thank you!

Sorry for my carelessness. Analyzing other urls, where the problem does not occur, they are subtly smaller. As this example:

You're right, it is a limitation of Windows.

Yes, that's true. If Offline Explorer would not truncate, such long URLs were not saved at all.
