After having tried numerous programs to delete a number of folders from one of my drives nothing worked. Even using the Command Line with every command and extension I could think off failed. Then I tried your program - Path Too Long Utility™. It worked simply and effectively. To your team of technicians a heartfelt thankyou.

I've got the application and it's removed the problem folder. Thanks again.

Thank you. This will help me solve some issues by students.

Thanks. I had some kind of a virus that wouldn't let me load any security programs. But I had located the application and your program enabled me to delete it. Thanks a million!

Excellent. That worked. Took it over an hour but it successfully deleted a nested application data series which nothing else would touch and which had swallowed up 79GB of my HDD. Paid for itself in one go.

I needed the 'Pro Version' badly. It is a fantastic program for my needs, in the beginning I had couple of error messages, but I worked around (such as I was copying over files gave me chkdisk error msg, then second time it copied only 250 files instead of 300 files completely-for example!??! I deleted copied folder and re-tried then it worked! etc. etc...)

I am happy with your product, I have discovered not so long ago, I find it so convenient to help solve the problems of file too long to make a backup copy from HDD because blocking 255 character windows. This is a really useful tool that works very well.

I used the product for the first time to delete a file that I no longer needed. Files was copied from a users “Shared Directory” to a preservation server. A few of the files I needed to delete, when I attempted to delete one (1) of the files would not delete because it was too long. I found your tool on the internet, down-loaded the application and successfully deleted the file.
I was very happy J.
