Fixed: Source File Names Larger than Supported by File System


At times, when you are trying to copy or delete a file on the computer, you may receive an error message saying Source Path Too Long with the explanation of the source file name(s) are larger than is supported by the file system.
This error appears mainly because one or more files that are kept in a series of subfolders that have long names, but Windows only allows 258 characters at most in the folder path subfolder. This will prevent you from moving the files or folders that are saved in this folder.
The suggestion given by this error window is that you can try moving to a location which has a shorter path name, or try renaming to shorter name(s) before attempting this operation.
Now, press the Cancel button on the error window and then try the solutions mentioned in this post to get rid of this issue.
