Hi Colin,

It's the combined total which includes the path which has
tipped it over the top.

Greetings,

I attempted to move a file named:

"Classic Serial The Complete Smiley - The Karla Trilogy
Book 3 - Smiley's
People 3 - Smiley moves the operation to Berne. But can
he be sure he's the
hunter, not the hunted.wav"

from

c:\attachments

to

k:\Radio Drama and readings\Classic Serials yet to be
processed
and received a message advising the file could not be
moved either because
the file name was invalid or the file name was too long.

surely, if there is a file name length limit, why would
XP Home allow me to
create a file with such a name?  The file name is not
invalid else I would
never have been allowed to create it so what is the
maximum length allowed
for a file to be moved/copied? and can anybody suggest
what is wrong with
the filename to have it reported invalid?

Thanks.
