Windows 7 Backup fails if file path length exceeds 260 characters


  1. Where is the download of that hotfix? Is so f… difficoult to do something correctly and add visible download link?

  2. Had MS email the hotfix link, as instructed, and the link leads to an Internal Server Error. Great.

  3. WTF. I got the same stupid response as well. Some1 pliz tell me where and how to install and get this working

  4. using cygwin with `rm` from the bash CLI (within windows) i was able to delete filenames that windows was complaining were too long, without installing this hotfix (hotfix wouldn’t install on my win7 anyway).
