I have a huge mess .. and it is from a profile from a Windows 7 machine. It is on my backup partition and I want to delete it.

This is just a sample of one of the folder paths ...

F:\SsdBackup\Users\Kevin\LOCALS~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\APPLIC~1\Microsoft\Windows

I cannot delete it cause Windows says the path is too long ..

This describes the issue .. I am not sure if Windows 8 has the same problem. I cannot use the utility described in this thread as it will not run in Windows 8. But I will try compatibility mode ..

I solved the issue only from formatting my drive (it was my backup drive) .. and just re-ran my backup script to refresh the files and made a new system image. It works, but it was a pain.
