Hi

I came across a weird problem today.

I have been running a music library from an ext USB driver (320GB+, mostly mpt3 files) for my Logitech Squeezebox devices.

Bought a nice new Win 7 64bit laptop today with a 750GB drive so tried to copy over the library.

Annoyingly approx. 113 mp3 files refused to copy because of filename length issues.

Don't understand why they can exist & be played from the USB drive on my old netbook, but there you go.

Is there an easy way I can use FB2K to identify all the culprits & shorten the filename lengths to circumvent this problem ?


thanks

Sorry - just being dim I guess.

I thought my issue was with the filename length specifically, rather than the path length.
