I have memoQ 6.8.57 installed. I'm still learning the program. I need to back up a file locally to transfer it to the cloud.
I get the message below. I tried shortening the name and directory to just a few words or so, and I still get the message.
Please advise!




TYPE:
System.IO.PathTooLongException

MESSAGE:
The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters.

SOURCE:

Best regards, Vladimir

I don't remember Dec 5

Ciao Vladimir,
It's been four years ago. I must have referred the matter to their technical assistance because there I only had one unsolvable problem all the years that I used MemoQ. I can't remember any details now, but they should be able to help.
