How can I decompress a file when my zip program (e.g., WinZip) returns an error that the file name is insensible?
The total path length (not file name length) has to be less than 255 characters. SAMHDA file names can be lengthy. If the path to which you wish to extract your files is also lengthy, then the zip program will fail.
Extract your files to the root directory of your hard drive (i.e., extract the files to c:\ instead of c:\User\My Documents\Projects\SAMHDA Data\).
