Files too long to copy?

Maximum path length is 260 in Windows Vista/7. I can recommend three solutions:

  • (if the path is too long) First copy the folder to upper levels in windows explorer and then move it to your local computer
  • (if file names are too long) First try to zip/rar/7z them with an archive application and then copy the archive file to your local computer and then extract the contents.
  • Use third party apps. [by Gani Simsek]

or Robocopy which is included in Windows 7 by default

robocopy /E <source> <destination>  [by Tom Wijsman]

IMHO just use ROBOCOP (3rd party gui for robocopy) application to this in easy way.
Windows CMD is poor and to understand how it handles paths is waste of time.
