Hi Guys

I'm running Windows 7, and I want to move stuff from my Pendrive over to my desktop but Windows 7 is moaning that some of the folder names are too long, yet I never had this issue in XP.

Is there a way around this?

Thanks

Rob

Windows 7 supports up to 244 characters total folders path file name. more info ClickHere

It may be that you are trying to move files to another folder path that then takes the total over the limit. example C:\Users\user name\Documents\ takes up 29 before you even start.

That's right is there a way to change this?
