I am copying data from a external hard drive to a new server - server 2012. I am getting file name to long message for some files and folders.  Both drives are NTFS. There are too many files and folders with the file name too long problem. it will be too much trouble for me to dig into each of them to rename it. What is the best option to resolve the problem?
