Manage The Nagging Long Path Errors With Long Path Tool

Are you getting error messages which say – make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not currently in use? Even after closing the file and other applications you cannot delete, rename, remove or unlock the file. The same nagging error message appears again and again.

What this error means

The error has nothing to do with a virus. It is entirely a limitation of your system. Your system is not able to manage files that are longer than 255 characters. Windows explorer or FAR will be unable to copy, delete or rename files longer than 255 characters and that is why this is known as path too long error.

The solution

The solution involves making your system recognize the name of the file so that it is able to manage it. For that you need a program that is able to resolve the long path name issue.

Long Path Tool can help you to resolve the problem. You have to download it and install in your computer. LPT is compatible with all Microsoft operating systems. After downloading open the tool and you will see all the files in it. Click on the file, and you will find it obeying all your commands.
