Hi have a problem copying a folder from my computer to a 1.5 TB Passport external hard drive. The folder is 191 GB. After copying everything over, there are 3 errors for 3 files because the filename is too long. What drives me crazy though is that I have already renamed these 3 files with shorter filenames. The error message from the copied files lists the old names, not the new ones. The file in the error message does not even exist, because I have renamed it. What is even more perplexing to me is that I do not get the error message if I copy only the folder that supposedly has the files with the long filenames. I still don't get the error even if I create a bunch of folders on the hard drive to recreate the files location in the whole directory on the new drive.
I'm getting errors for files that don't exist! What should I do?
