    Dear Geeks,

    We are facing the "Destination/ Source path too long - try by shortening the name ".

    Some times users are unable to access the files on file server because of path too long.

    So what is solution for this without shortening the names ?


    Thanks in Advance.

    Do you have a share setup to access the folder where the docs are stored on the file server? Have you mapped a drive to point to that share?

    Dear ,
    Yes in the file server we have shared the folders and users have access to those ,but not mapped any drive for any folder.
