In Response to: [Wish] I would like to see Ztree support the Windows 10 long file path (Tim Mongeon)

In regards to my dynamic reference, the example I used was an extreme one just to illustrate the point for long path support. A better example of how the database works (again, for anybody interested) is this - using the subject, Autoplay:

Autoplay, Autorun
How to Disable Autorun Functionality in Windows Using Registry Editor
Disable AutoPlay in Windows
Disable Autoplay of Audio CDs and USB Drives
Disable AutoPlay of Blank CD or DVD media
How to Enable, Disable, and Customize AutoPlay in Windows 10
Removing unwanted AutoPlay Handlers

Each of these directories may hold information in the form of files, saved web pages, etc. Anytime I need to research a subject or problem, the information is readily available. It is dynamic, because the information can be changed, deleted, or added easily because all of the information is kept on external drives using 'Ztree' to manage the data and 'Everything' to keep the search index. It is a very good system and best because it works offline. The Drives are portable so if my system is down and I need to find out why and how to fix it, I just hook it to a working system and conduct the research.
