"Path Too Long" Error Message

Hi guys,

 

Windows Home Server has problems with large files above 4GB or 5GB. Using the simple copy-and-paste in Windows Explorer or by dragging and dropping from the source to the destination causes the system to either completely lock up or results in a “Path too deep” or "Path too long" error messages.


What Causes It?

It is mostly caused by having over 256 characters in the path. You have to remember that although the SHARE name is only for example serverRecordedTV, the actual folder on the WHS box is probably something like the following due to the way Drive Extender handles the data.:

C:fs4DEfolders{00008086-058D-4C89-AB57-A7F909A47AB4}

OR

C:fsDDEfolders{00008086-058D-4C89-AB57-A7F909A47AB4}

So as you can see, with the above path, your directory and file naming can easily go over the 256 permitted characters.

 

What can you do?

Try Path Too Long fix
