Error copying File or Folder

Cannot copy file: The file name you specified is not valid or too long.
Specify a different file name.

NOTE: To locate the previous version for a folder located over network:

  1. Browse to \\CONTOSO.com\dfs\eeff, right-click on the folder, and select Previous Version.
  2. Double-click on any of the snapshots available.
