A user deleted a folder and as a usualy practice, I attempted to copy the folder from a previous copy (shadow copy) back to the original location (this is a Windows environment). However, the copy fails due to long filenames in many of the subfolders. I can't restore the folder as the folder in question is a subfolder of the snapshot folder. My workaround (for now) is to copy many folders a few at a time, but I'm still hit with the message that some files can't be copied due to the long filename.
I've never experienced this before when copying from the Previous Copies - has anyone ever seen this and any suggestions how to copy all of the subfolder contents back to the original location?
If you right-click on the folder that you want to restore (after selecting your desired shadow copy) and click on "Properties", you'll see a string like "\\localhost\F$\@GMT-2019.07.03-12.00.00\FolderName" in the "Location" field of the file/folder. You can then use Robocopy to restore the folder and its contents.
