Ashish's Note

Over the past few years, I learnt a lot and get fond of Microsoft Technlogy. From The basics of Active Directory to the high end troubleshooting and disaster recovery, to the VPN configuration, Its being a good time for me as I got lots of opportunities to learn and grow.

In 2004, I got hired by "Microsoft" as a full time employee in its GTSC located in Bangalore. I experienced hardcore troubleshooting on real time issues as a big challange and very very intersting, which gave me vibrant knowledge of Operating System Troubleshooting, Active Directory, Clustering, Performance, Disks, Terminal Server, Printing, STOP Codes and BSOD screens.

My Fantastic past experience on HP/MSCS cluster, Server Hardware and System Administration, boosted my skills to take charge of customer's problem and make me to deal with the issues till the resolution.


Today working with Perot Systems, I am using this Blog to contribute my knowledge to the society and to make every individual who need directives to grow in IT field.

Lets post your views and questions you have, hit my brain to let it mentor the best possible IT solutions and career options.

Yours,

Ashish Sharma.

Find files with the path, longer then given characters limit

One of my friend ask me to find any tool or script which can list all the files longer then 255 characters under any given path including subdirectory.

Here is the solution and its free :)

Path Scan is a useful software application that will calculate the total path length of your files.
Scan files in directories and get their path length. This is useful to determine failures in particular processes which are limited with path length, like CD/DVD burning Software or File Synchronization. Path Scan is a useful software utility that allows you to easily determine if paths are compatible with a process.
