Error Deleting File or Folder

It is not a secret that Windows OS has many problems and far from perfection. The most annoying one is the one about long names and paths. Unfortunately, we all can bump into it in regardless of our computer characteristics and system version. It is also sad that Microsoft doesn’t do anything to fix the problem or to provide users with a simple manual. That is why we need to figure out ourselves and luckily there is an easy solution.

The core of the problem is in inability to manage some files and folders. Of course we all copy, rename, delete and open fails every day and don’t see any difficulties in that. So, we expect all files to be managed easily and smoothly. With that being said when we see errors like File name too long, Destination Path Too Long or Too long path we have no idea what to do and if it can be fixed. Windows doesn’t help at all as well as Internet manuals. They are so complicated and long that you may create more damage to a system than help.

There is a solution and with no doubt those errors can be fixed easily. Long Path Tool offers you a simple way to manage files and folders in the Windows system without errors. This software can cope, open, delete and rename everything you want and also help with many other problems. As a Windows OS user you should be able to control what’s going on in the system and that’s why you need Long Path Tool.

Most likely you have had situations when you tried to delete or open files and fail. Sometimes it is even impossible to find files, not speaking about managing them. The error message File name too long is self explanatory and appears when the file has a long name. But sometimes it is critical to have an access to the file. It can slower a computer, especially old one and make damage to it. It can be a virus or adware that should be deleted from the system. There are so many errors about managing files that we won’t mention all of them, but you should be able to define the most common ones. So, here is the list:

  • Path too long
  • Error Copying File or Folder
  • Error cannot delete file: cannot read from source file or disk
  • File cannot be copied
  • Cannot delete file: Access is denied
  • There has been a sharing violation
  • The specified file or folder name is too long. The URL path for all files and folders must be 260 characters or less (and no more than 128 characters for any single file or folder name in the URL). Please type a shorter file or folder name
  • Cannot remove folder
  • Destination Path Too Long
  • Error Deleting File or Folder
  • winrar 260 character limit fix

All this mistakes appear with files that have 255 characters in names. Microsoft put limitations to have control over files and to protect the system, but in fact it causes more problems. So, it is impossible to copy, delete, rename and open them. Of course Windows doesn’t delete anything, they are stored in the system but out of your reach.
