Re: Shorten windows paths too long
in thread Shorten windows paths too long
That is exactly what I'm trying to do here. Rename directories programmatically to make the paths shorter i.e. more succinct. I have something like 70 of them and each path requires about 4 or 5 renames to shorten by 30 or so characters.
Trying to get them all done in one day to move the whole mess to a shorter path root. (i.e. c:\hw instead of c:\softwaredistribution
Unfortunately we can't move the folders until the path is < 256 characters.
