Restoring files with VSS not possible Path too long

A customer has downloaded a cryptolocker virus.
I want to restore this with the Previous versions of Windows File Sharing services.

Problems is that this customer likes to create a lot of of subfolders with abnormaly long file names.

When restoring the files with VSS i get the message "File Path too long" with all the folders and file. Which are A LOT!.

Is there any way i cant ignore this 260 char limit and restore the files? without renaming every folder or file?
