So you’re copying several gig’s worth of data across your network to another home computer or server when suddenly up pops the (by now classic) error message “Destination Path Too Long”. So what can you do about it? Absolutely nothing that’s what. You could of coarse if you’re extremely die-hard take out a pencil and paper and write down the file name and then come back to it later and rename it manually – which would be fine if you’re only copying a few files across, but if you’re copying hundreds or even thousands that would be a problem.

Do Microsoft present you with any alternatives other that Skip or Cancel as though any other alternatives don’t exist? No. Why? Because they’re as thick as two short planks. Their stupidity on simple matters such as this really makes me worry about the code we can’t see. The “What’s under to hood.” sort of code.

Crikey, are you guys of sub normal intelligence or what?
