    ...

    you get the idea. ( too lazy to put it in a for loop and test it.

    or just open regedit and remove all the fileX from that key.

  3. Can't open or rename file (name is too long) WTF?

    Thread necro...

    When in doubt, use CMD.

    1. Run CMD
    2. Use CD <path> to navigate to the directory where the file exists.
    3. Use the DIR command to get the list of files. DIR will likely abbreviate the ridiculously long named file with NAME~1.
    4. Use the MOVE <source> <destination> to give the file a new name. For example: move "NAME~1" "MyShortName"
    5. ...
    6. PROFIT!

    CMD is always the answer. *Wink The source file name(s) are larger than is supported by the file system ;)

    Long File (link) Name in favorites will not delete

    Changing owner does not allow the deletion of file...same error message....."the source file name(s) are larger than supported by the file system etc"..instructing to move (which doesn't do anything) or shorten name (which you can't do because name is
    too long)
