Here I Fix ‘File Path Too Long’ Error While Copying, Deleting or Opening Files. ‘File Path Too Long’ Error is an error that when you try to copy something. So, it happens when you copy any file and then just try to paste it. This error stops you from the copying process and you can’t complete the process. This happens due to the pre-defined character limit and beyond this limit you cannot name any file or other stuffs. Mostly the character range is 256-260 characters. The important thing is that the character limit is for the file path and the file paths are too long if the file is too deep behind the folders and folders and hence the error occurs. Now lets see the solution to this error.
How to Fix ‘File Path Too Long’ Error
The first easy thing is that you just shorten the file and the folder names coming along the path to reduce the characters length.
Now open the command prompt and type the below command:
subst J: “the file path you want to shorten”
In above command in place of “J” you can write any drive letter.
Now open the J drive and just copy the data from there.
Note: Now to remove the new drive J just type subst J: /d in command prompt.
