Unpack Folder error when using Pack and Go feature

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am working on my PowerPoint Presentation with the use of Pack and Go feature. This feature usually limits the number of characters of your filenames to 8 without containing a space in it.

Pack and Go contains an Unpack Folder inside it that allows you to violate the naming rule of Pack and Go itself.

Meaning, you can name your file beyond 8 characters, and you can include spaces in it. Pack and Go is a technology under the licensing of Microsoft Windows.

Any idea why Unpack Folder gets an error shown below?

Thanks for the help!

Pack and Go Setup

Source Folder: C:TEMPPACKAN~1

Destination Folder: C:TEMPPACK AND GOUNPACK

Extraction might take a few minutes and will ask you for additional disks if needed.



Pack and Go Setup

Invalid directory name. Please make sure the name is less than 8 characters and has no spaces.

Unpack Folder error when using Pack and Go feature

When using PowerPoint’s Pack and Go feature, your destination folder must only contain 8 characters and should have no spaces in the path so choose a folder or directory that is only less than or equal to it. This technology came from the early days of Microsoft Windows.

So as you can see, when you see your image in the destination folder, you have exceeded the character's limit for the directories and also you have spaces in the “pack and go” path so this results for the error you have encountered which is "Invalid Directory name. Please make sure the name is less than 8 characters and has no spaces".
