Path Too Long | Filename too long | Filename is too long | Path too long utility or 7zip filemanager Works with the longer filepaths etc
I am deleting some old student files and folders but am finding that some of the students have created really deep folder paths that I cannot delete the files/folders as I get "Cannot delete file :" or "The file name you specified is not valid or too long". I then have to go in and rename all the sub folders to single characters which can be very time consuming.
I tried using "rmdir /s" but this wont do some folders.
map a network drive durther down the path so if its really
map z: (say) to
delete the files remove the drive map then remove the higher up folders
We use Treesize Professional and it does a very good job of removing them. It will search for duplicate files, files that haven't been accessed for x amount of time and so on.
There is a free version but it will only work on the machine it's installed on rather than the pro version which will work across your network.
