This will write to console the full path of any file with a path containing greater than 260 characters

foreach ($file in (Get-ChildItem 'c:\insert\path' -Recurse)) {
  if ($file.fullname.length -gt 260) {
    Write-Host $file.fullname
  }
}

Open in new window

Try this in PowerShell.

Out-File c:\OutputFile.txt ; cmd /c "dir /b /s /a" | ForEach-Object { if ($_.length -gt 250) {$_ | Out-File -append c:\OutputFile.txt}}
