Filenaming protocol? - Windows Server

What is the best protocol for naming files stored on a server and accessed by multiple workstations? Is there a limit to the number of characters or whether there are spaces between characters?...

    What is the best protocol for naming files stored on a
    server and accessed by multiple workstations?

    Is there a limit to the number of characters or whether
    there are spaces between characters?

    Default Re: Filenaming protocol?

    Recalling from memory, file names on the Windows platform
    can have 256 characters not including the extension and they
    can indeed include spaces but 'best practice' suggests never
    using spaces in file names if and when the files may need to
    be referenced in code.

    I've had some problems with path lengths. If the path
    (including th file name) exceeds 256 characters, you may
    have problems opening and saving files!
