emFile does not explicitly limit the depth of a directory.

There is however one API function which temporarily stores the full path to a directory: FS_CreateDir().

It uses FS_MAX_PATH define (default: 260 bytes) to allocate the path buffer.

Also, when emFile is compiled with FS_MULTI_HANDLE_SAFE is set to 1

the full path to an opened file is stored internally. The maximum number of bytes in the

path can be specified using the FS_MAX_LEN_FULL_FILE_NAME define (default: 256 bytes).

Best regards,
