WinRAR Problem - The System Cannot Find the Path Specified
I tried to extract a WinRAR archive. Then I got this error... the system cannot find the path specified... and then I solved the problem...
WinRAR is a very good program and all but sometimes there are just problems that are too frustrating. I tried to extract a WinRAR archive of some files that I received from my friend and I got this error for all files in the archive:
the system cannot find the path specified
At first I thought it was a password thing, but my friend did not specify any password for the WinRAR archive. So there must be something else. Then I found out that there was a folder in the file that had a long name. Perhaps that was the thing causing the error? I renamed the folder (inside the WinRAR archive) to a simple and short name and voila! Extraction complete.
So if you still get a "the system cannot find the path specified" error, you know what to do!
