Long Path Eraser Free Description

“Can’t access this folder. Path is too long” is an error that you encounter at one time or the other. This is due to the fact that the path itself exceeds the MAX_PATH value.

MAX_PATH is the maximum length for a path that is given in the Windows API and is 260 characters. The path is formed from the drive letter, colon, backslash, folder (and/or file) names that are separated by backslashes and ends with a null character. If the system’s interpretation of this path is in anyway flawed, then that path can cause various types of errors, ultimately making the folders and files at that path inaccessible.

If this is the case, then you can not copy, rename or delete files and folders that reside at that path. These long paths that cause the errors are generally created by ad-ware, viruses, operating system incompatibilities and applications that at some point malfunction.

Long Path Eraser Free, as its name suggests, is a tool that you can use to remove the these paths which otherwise remain useless. Since a path contains the location of various folders, when clearing a broken path you also delete all the files that are found in the directories.

The application displays a comprehensive and straightforward interface that makes it easy to delete the folders you want. All you have to do is enter the path and then simply click the delete button. Long Path Eraser Free takes care of the rest and displays a small log that tells you the time when the process started, along with the number of found files, their sizes and the finishing time.

In closing, Long Path Eraser Free is definitely a handy tool that can help you remove long paths that cause errors on your system but you do need to be careful when deleting them. Some might contain important data you can still recover.
