Hello Everyone,

I'm wondering what Microsofts FSM tool does with files that exceed the math path limit. Does it still copy them? Or does it exclude them? Whats the best way to avoid this error and keep everything intact?

It turns out it just a warning message because some applications cannot access files with a path or name longer than 260 characters... the file is still copied though.
