Hi. Is it a single file or is the file in a folder? Walter.

That's just it, the file is on my C drive. I can't copy, move, rename, or
anything. How do you move it or how do you rename it? F2 will not work and
neither does the applications key. Thanks bunches.

Hi Monica. I get this notification frequently and there are a number of
ways you can deal with it. Firstly, did your friend send the files in a
compressed format? If so then place the compressed file in your C drive,
the folder where your name is, the same folder where you will find your desk
top or your music folder (assuming you are using Win7). When you have done
this, extract the files there. Once you have extracted the files check to
see how many folders or sub folders there are and check the length of the
file names. You should be able to rename the files and folders where you
are but if you have a destination folder where you want them to live then
you will most likely have to shorten the file names or folder names or
reduce the number of subfolders.. It is frustrating and I have this problem
frequently, especially with very long audio book titles. I often can
extract them but trying to move them and putting them elsewhere is a problem
until I've reduced the file path. Walter.

Subject: [TechTalk] Problem Renaming Files

Yesterday I received some files from a friend. When trying to paste the
files to a new location, I got the following error:
Source Path Too Long
The source file name(s) are larger than is supported by the file system. Try
moving to a location which has a shorter path name, or try renaming to
shorter name(s) before attempting this operation.
15 - Chronic With A K Feat. Leigh Stephens - We G...
This happens when I try to delete as well. I’m using Windows Seven, 64-bit.
I’d like to rename this or get it off my hard drive. Any solutions? Please
help. I’ve had this happen with other files too. Sometimes I can delete them
and sometimes I can’t. Once I was able to rename with F2 like normal, but
that doesn’t work anymore. Thanks bunches for any help.
