    How can I COPY very long file paths and long file names with spaces?
    I tried Robocopy and received message ---- ERROR 2 (0X00000002) Accessing Source Directory C:\MyDocuments\
    Has anyone found a quick way to copy directories and folders with extended path to another drive on a portable HD?

    Hi man

    I suggest you to try software Long Path Tool, it would fix your issues very quickly.

    I would suggest xcopy in cmd. It doesn't stop until its finished and very rarely crashes.I used this to get my little win7 netbook working. Hope this helps!
