Try " Long Path Tool " is also useful in situations where you see
these error messages: Cannot read from source file or disk, there has been a
sharing violation, cannot delete file or folder, the file name you specified is
not valid or too long, the source or destination file may be in use & many
other file managing errors that you encounter in your computing use.
