When doing open/os.stat/...(dirpath+filename)
and total path > 250 chars then

OSError: "[Errno 38] Filename too long"

is there a way to access the file without changing to that
directory (its in a thread and a fast iteration of many file too) ?

Change filename

r"c:\temp\long.txt"

to

ur"\\?\c:\temp\long.txt"
