Windows 7: Unable to Move or Copy Some Files to a Folder

Unable to Move or Copy Some Files to a Folder

I have numerous family genealogy files/folders on a thumb drive that I want to copy to an existing folder on a HDD, but when I attempt the process it starts and stops at an annoying number of files that are reported to have file names that are too long. Even after I shorten them I still get the same error message and the file will not copy.
Is there a way around this issue?

Any assistance would be appreciated
