File names too long to copy

I have about 900 files that will not copy because file name/path is too long.  The copy was done from multiple folders at the same time so I don't know where they are. Is there a way to show which files did not copy or a way to search for files with long names?

Thanks,
cja

Use robocopy or richcopy to make them move into another folder higher up the tree.

As suggested above, use robocopy, but enable logging and see which files failed.

Does Robo copy have a GUI interface?

Have a look at this for a GUI version (actually just a command builing tool). I would learn command line version though
