    You should probably reorganize things so that you're not going so deep, or with shorter names. However, you may be able to "cheat" by mapping a drive to [some portion of] the destination path, and then copying the files to the mapped drive. This has worked for me, though sometimes if the destination is on a network share, it fails. – Jeff Zeitlin Jul 24 '18 at 12:59
  • "Any suggestions how to resolve it?" - The only real solution is to use shorter paths. Windows 10 has experimental support for longer paths. – Ramhound Jul 24 '18 at 13:56

If the subfolders have longer file name, just shorten their name, and copy them.

If the subfolders are too deep, please try the following workaround.

  1. copy the subfolders to the root directory or directory that is close to the root directory.
  2. copy the subfolders(has been copied to root directory) to where you want.
