Renaming a found file?


Recommended Posts

How can I rename a file that Recuva finds? Several of the found files on an USB stick have very long file names; when I try to recover them I get the "Maximum path length exceeded" error message which is indicative of a long file name. So, how can can I change these long file names so Recuva can work its magic?


Thanks in advance!

In another trusted forum I came across this suggestion today


That is an evaluation version - probably limited by how many times it can be used.


It is supposed to give you success when Windows prefers to say "Maximum path length exceeded".


I have not A.V. scanned it - not even downloaded it, but this suggests it is a legit company with legit revenue stream
