Source file names are larger than is supported by the file system

Many users are being affected by this issue when trying to copy a file/folder and are getting this error message “The source file names are larger than is supported by the file system“.

 

Solution: Use robocopy.exe

Syntax:  robocopy /MIR c:\*empty* c:\*targetedfolder*

 

My syntax that works best is as follows.

robocopy.exe <Source> <Destination> /dcopy:T /E
