Error when copy file The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters

Hi!
Robot try copy file from one server to other. And get system error:
System.IO.PathTooLongException: The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters.
How in uipath decide this error without longpathtool and other programs?

Hi @Aleksey_M,
Could you precise your question?
I see in the error that your FQDN has more than 260 characters according to the error.

Hi Pablito, you can to do test file on your dektop with very long path (many directories) and try to use activity Copy File. In this case I get this error

Yes I know, but this is limitation from MS not from UiPath.
