Cannot Remove Folder The Filename Or Extension Is Too Long

When trying to move, copy or delete a file / folder, you can get this error:

Error Copying | Moving | Deleting File

Cannot remove folder <<Folder Name>> the filename or extension is too long

This is actually because the file / folder is locked, not because it’s too long. To fix this error, download a file unlocking software package. These are typically free and can be found easily on Google.
