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.

Thanks! Your application worked well and accomplished it's purpose.

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.

I finally used your tool and it fixed my problem. I was using a script here, but your program is much better.Thanks and good luck.

Thank you so much for developing the path too long utility. It was the only software that eliminated the files clogging my hard drive, and it freed up 345 GB of space! Thanks again, and keep up the great work!

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.

Ha! I was able to delete several troublesome WORD files. Thanks!

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.
