Long file path in VirtualBox on Windows using Vagrant

Windows by default limits the path length to 260 characters. This became a problem for me when I shared a folder from VirtualBox containing a node_modules folder. Nested dependencies can create some long paths (a well known problem) and we weren't willing to use any workarounds in the code since using Vagrant should already abstract the developers OS away. I found a solution in issue#1953 at the Vagrant repository.

Overtone in a Ubuntu VM

This lead me to use VirtualBox instead.
