File renaming utility for LONG Filenames

Which might be the case here but

I've seen the files it's talking about and they're damn long so that doesn't help either.

The problem is it doesn't offer me the chance to rename them or something and it simply stops copying and I don't know where the hell to resume from so I have to stop and with a directory with over 4 gigs of files, it makes it hard to find what the machine last copied.

Of course, until recently, I had no idea that the WHOLE path makes a difference so I've never really practiced any restraint.

Oh, don't get me wrong, the filenames are probably UNDER 256 charcters or whatever's allowed but as you say, they are usually under SOME folder or two.

In this case, these I think were under two levels of folders and although their names were fairly normal, the filenames WERE long.

So, any ideas for automatically finding filenames/paths LONGER than the allowed characters?
