This tool scans specified file system path and shows you which are too long or are "dangerously" close to length 255 characters. You can specify minimum length. Why is this important? NTFS does not like file lengths larger than 255 characters. It can lead to errors, for example if you burn CD or DVD with long file paths, or if you use file synchronization tool, which is also a bit problematic, when comes to paths larger than 255 characters. With Path Scanner you can avoid this, by generating a list of paths with certain length. After the scan you can export the list to CSV, which can be easly opened in Microsoft Excel or other CSV reader.
New feature is analyzer, which shows you which folder or file is to long, or in other words, it's critical. You can simply change it with Path Scanner. If you know that you'll no longer need particular file you can also delete it. Deleting folders is also possible, but it's not advised to use.
