Top 5 tools to manage long path files

I want to share with all those who are victim of such long path files
Long path files are those files which have a path having charcters more than the limit allowed by windows,ie approx 200

Whenever we want to change,delete,move,cut,omit,share or install such file windows give error like file is copy write protected,it is used by some other application or user,is blocked etc

First way is to change file name but it dont work

Second way is to delete such file by holding shift but it also dont work

Third way is to use a tool which embeds into core and resolves such long path,there are many tools available both freeware and shareware,here are some with their destination websites:

1.First of all is robocopy which is a tool given by microsoft for copying and xcopying files using command line interface,this robust tool boostes copy procedure but is leaste effective for long path files,i will rate it 1 star

2.Second one is pathlongtool available at pathlong.com,it is rated 2 star because it has limited functionality in case of mapping and changing such files

3.Third one is Long path support Api,this is a complex tool for advanced users having complex accessibilities,i will rate it as 2 star,it is avilable at file32.com

4.Fourth tool is *****ip file gear,it is a file copy gearer which cannot map and delete long path files but is extremely useful in gearing copying of such files,rated as 3 star.It is available at file32.com

5.The most effective and efficient is longpathtool ,it is a small,smart and quick to use software which can be easily downloaded from its site,it has optimum functionality and it can change,search,map from network,omit,copy,install and delete such long path file effectively.

Re: Top 5 tools to manage long path files

the best tool is still to simply rename your file.
highlight your file then press F2 (free, built in function)

wcogent's solution is still the best. If a filename is too long for Windows, then your directory hierarchy must be massively convoluted and over-complicated. No-one wants to click through 50 folders just to get to that one file, right?
