Limit file name

Is there a way to limit the length of the file names and folder that calibre saves? I am trying to include my calibre library in my automatic backup (copies files to external USB drive) but alot of the folder/file names are too long. Any suggestions?

If you mean the file names created by save to disk, you can use preferences->add/Save to set a template.

Thanks. Also does it apply retroactively or just to new books added, after I make the changes?

this applies to saving books via the save books button not to the filenames in the calibre library.
