I chose skip.
Now, how can I find these 27 files?
. Free 30-day trial, but I'm sure you'll purchase it because it's really so terribly useful for so many things you often do (e.g. sync music files from your PC music collection to your portable music player, etc.).
One of its functions is "folder compare", presented visually in two panes, left side and right side. By specifying the high-level folder (or drive?) for your source and destinations from your copy process, it will compare all of the folders and files under that high-level designation. All differences will be identified... although you'll have to "expand" the highlighted folders to keep seeing the lower-level differences, until you can actually see the file mismatches once you get down to the true low-level folder that had the difference on left and right side.
You can present things either in (a) show me everything, including highlighting the differences) mode, or (b) show me only those folders which have differences.
In your case, your 27 files that did not get copied from source to destination will eventually be shown (once you expand all of the enclosing higher-level parent folders involved). You can then choose to do whatever you want... e.g. right click and choose "copy from left to right" if your source pane is on the left and target pane is on the right". I suspect the too-long file name issue will produce a popup here as well, and you will be offered an opportunity to rename it before copying so as to be acceptable.
This "folder compare" function is just one of MANY things you can do with Beyond Compare.
