Path Too Deep - USB2.0 Memory Drive XP

  Hitchhiker 15:16 06 Apr 2004

Hey all,

Sometimes when I try to access, copy or delete a folder on my Pockey Drive on my USB 2.0 I get the error 'Path Too Deep'. What does this mean and how can I fix it.

I think the expression "Too Deep" means that there are too many submenus in the folder. e.g C:\this folder\thisfile is not a deep path, whereas C:\this folder\this subfolder\this subsubfolder\this otherheading\thisfile is a deeper path.

Thanks but the path is not deep e.g. - MyFolder\subfolder. Its very odd.

A google search suggests that you may also get this message if you use long names.

I saw that on Google. No probs - thanks for the help anyway.
