File Copy Errors "Path Too Long" RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to backup a large folder of music files from my C drive to my D drive.  It is a 4 hour operation.  Almost all the files copied by the copy operation kept stopping because of errors regarding path or filename length.  

    I am told that MS is aware of this and there is a Hotfix for this as Windows has some problems in this area.

    I am using Windows 7 PRO 64 bit SP1.

    Can anyone direct me to the Hotfix if one indeed exists.

    Thank you in advance
