Copy all sub folders to destination can be longer than windows allowed path length

The contents of a CD with quite a few nested folders
Copied using QuickHash to a networked drive which starts atleast +60 characters from its\’ root due to path length.

QuichHash will copy beyond the \’safe\’ 260 character limit in windows, which makes using files and backups/archiving interesting.

Is it possible to do a path/file length of target in a column to flag any of these discrepancies

    So do you think that it’s a bad thing? That QH can find and copy files from and to folders that exceed the Windows ‘safe’ limit? It was made specifically to overcome that ridiculous limit that Microsoft imposed, that the other operating systems do not. Many users asked for that capability, and QH is not the only tool that overcomes it. Robocopy is one example. It is not a fault. It is made possible by design as documented in the user manual.
