Windows 7: Destination path too long

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit
Destination path too long

Hello every body,

At work, there is one PC which i want to take a backup.
over there, there is storage server which is being used for the Backup.

I took copy and paste from D Drive to the Storage server but during the copying process a message appeared that the is too long as shown in the screen shot.

I thought to set with the employer and check all folder names and make them shorten.

any good advise?

Thank you for any help.
