Default “Destination Path Too Long” error while trying to copy, move or remove

Users get the “Destination Path Too Long” error while trying to copy, move or remove certain files or folders on Windows operating systems. Most of the time, this error happens because Microsoft has a 256/260 folder and name restriction in place.
The total length of a Windows pathname+filename is limited to 256 characters and Windows will not let you create anything longer than that. This is not an issue people run into often with simple files, but when unzipping files with long descriptive folder names, you can easily hit it. One of the situations where you can hit this limit is when you try to unzip, (extract) the electronic copies of some of our books.
so, you can use (LPT).
