This behavior sounds like a file system limitation that is 260 characters in IE the following error is observed as well but after Postback because the file name in the Temporary folder is generated automatically as a Guid-The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters.
Hope this will explain the issue.
