CANCopy 2.0

about CANCopy

Have you ever tried to copy or delete files on your computer and been told that “The filename you specified is invalid or too long. Specify a different filename”?

If you have, you know that you can’t perform a backup of your files, as Windows will cancel the process at the point of the problem, leaving you wondering what was copied, and what was not.

The problem is caused by Windows (98, 2000, XP & Vista) not allowing file paths of more that 231 characters. It's a time consuming problem for us to fix, if indeed, we can fix it at all.

CanCopy solves this problem and allows files with long paths to be copied and deleted.


Why use CANCopy?

CANCopy bypasses Windows functionality using the Java Runtime Environment, allowing the user to quickly copy files that they would have otherwise been unable to.

And if a problem does occur (e.g. corrupt file) it doesn't stop the whole copy process, like it does using the Windows copy function. CANCopy simply bypasses the problem file, and provides an error log at the end of the copy process.
