Sounds like Bug 1337 or ? Wonder a little that bug priority is only medium.

Yes, WinSCP indeed does not support long path with the FTP protocol.

Hello martin,
Is it still not supported?
Because I just had a 'long-path' problem with FTP protocol (downloading to local). I only added "\\?\" in front of the local path, and it worked!
