Synctoy: path too long problem

The error message goes something like this: "The path is too long after being fully qualified".

If you can't rename your folders or map a network drive to shorten the path, FORGET IT. This problem has been around for years and still hasn't been fixed. It will most likely never be fixed.

A couple of alternatives from the top of my head: rsync and robocopy. Here:

cwRsync download.
Robocopy download.
Rsync howto and alternatives.

They are not as cute as Synctoy but, on the other hand, they are not toys and will get the job done.

I had the similar problem and faced it a lot of times. I often solve this type of problems using "Long Path Tool". It helped me in solving this error and all related errors.
