    Use Long Path Tool, Long Path Tool can simplify and probably end your problems in unlocking, managing and renaming files that appear to have a long filename.

      For anyone needing/wanting to deal with long path names within Perl rather than using external tools, the Win32::LongPath is capable of handling the long path names. And it provides replacement functions for tasks like stat and copy.
