TeraStation backup to USB taking a long time to complete

TeraStation backup to USB taking a long time to complete due to long file names.

The Terastation's USB drive has a file path limit of 120 characters.

If the file is many directories deep, this limit can be reached quite quickly. This is a limit with EXT3 so it cannot be fixed in a firmware update.

Users will need to implement shorter filenames or a shallower directory structure. This will appear on TeraStations if the USB drive is formatted in EXT3 or possibly FAT32.
