How can a transfer/move/copy files with long filenames/paths in Vista?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I backed up my laptops using Seagate's Auto Backup software onto a 750 GB HD. I now want to transfer/move/copy the files onto another 750 GB hard drive but Vista gives me the error message that the paths to where the files are kept (and sometimes the filenames themselves) are to long. There are quite a few of these files (in the hundreds, most of them being links in Favorites). How do I move them over? [Vista Ultimate 32 bit version)

If it's total path is too long (longer than 255 characters), windows will complain. It's another restricting feature. Select the files manually and move them. The best way would be this if you have a look at this site http://longpathtool.com you would get better solution from this site.
