Only for this file? Can you rename it in Windows Explorer?

Yes rename in Windows explorer works perfectly fine and issue is not only files in this folder but this happens in most of the folders. Rarely it succeeds.

Is this a long path issue?

Code: Select all
c:/user/shahid/documents/azure/az-103/videos/pluarlsight/2.intermediate/4.deploying multiple virual machines in microsoft azure/3. configuring arm templates for multi-vm deployment/11 - azure policy vs. azure rbac - depoloying multiple virtual machines in microsoft azure.mp4


275 characters, if I did it correctly.

The normal maximum path length in Win 10 is 260. And you are exceeding it. But nowadays you can change this limit.
You have Win 10 Pro so you can run the Group Policy Editor and make this change.
This link gives detailed instructions:

The link referenced will take you to a page giving old instructions that won't work.

Here is the procedure:

1. Hit the Windows key.
2. type gpedit.msc and press Enter.
3. Navigate to:
Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Filesystem

4. Double click the Enable Win32 Long paths option and enable it.

Note that this doesn't work with most 3rd party desktop programs. I am not even sure it works with BRU.

I have asked TGRMN software to better support long file names for renaming options in the past.

Windows still chokes with long paths. It needs to be improved.
