Path Scanner scans specified file system paths and shows you which are too long or are dangerously close to length 255 characters. The app generates a list of paths with certain lengths. After the scan you can export the list to CSV, which can be then be opened in Microsoft Excel or another CSV reader.
Path Scanner is a powerful and fast file scanner that will help you identify long file paths on your computer or server.
The app supports UNC file paths. It uses Microsoft Framework 2.0 and can be run on all systems above Windows XP.
Path Scanner has multiple functions. As the app can be only executed through Windows' Command Prompt utility, you need to have medium to advanced PC skills to understand and therefore benefit from its capabilities.
Overall, Path Scanner is a great help for administrators or those who need help in identifying long file paths on a PC or server. As the app does not feature a GUI and its functions are technical, it does make it difficult for novice users to access all the features though.
