The file path is too long

Description

A file name or file path is too long for this version of Windows.

Possible Causes

A file name that was provided, either on the source or target computer, is too long. This error is most common when copying files within a directory from one place to another where the target path creates file names that are too long.

Recommended Fix

Reduce the length of the source file path. In Windows typically he fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters.
