Thanks for the question, made me do some research.

Has anyone used file tables in production yet?

I replaced the old IBM Doc Store application using FileTable.
About 200 times more efficient, no timeouts, less space consumed, much better all round.

Thank you for the post, ST, very very interesting one.

(As I am using this feature for the first time, I just created a FT and was looking in to the detailed information using sp_help, there are several constraints and the associated constraint_key under it has very non-easy understandable rules)

This is kind of a trick question. The actual path is not stored in the schema at all. Rather the filetable path_locator is of data hierarchyid that identifies the position of this node in the hierarchical FileNamespace.

I'm still not sure how to extract that actual path (i.e. conventional Windows path name)

The file will be visible in the location of the filegroup defined for FileTable, provided non transactional API have been allowed...
for further detail, see QotD Regarding FileTable
