    Hi

    I just brought a new computer. In copying the files from my old drive (XP Professional) to a new drive with Windows 7 Home, some of the files were not copied because the file names are too long. Windows 7 doesn't tell me which folders the files are located. How do I make Windows 7 to accept long file names? Thank you in advance.
