I believe this may be relate to MS technote (Q180410) part of which is quoted below.
<H3>SYMPTOMS</h3><P>When you attempt to open, delete, or rename a folder using Windows NT Explorer or File Manager, you may receive one of the following error messages:
<BR /><UL><BLOCKQUOTE><DIV CLASS="kberrormessage"><LI>Cannot delete folder - path too Deep</li><BR /><BR /><LI>Can't access this folder.<BR />Path is too long</li><BR /><BR /></div></blockquote></ul>Some third-party anti-virus and tape backup programs may be unable to access files or folders with paths that are too long.</p><BR /><H3>CAUSE</h3><P>This problem can occur if the path to the file or folder is longer than
the file system can accommodate. For example, this problem may occur if you connect a drive to a share and then create a path over 255 characters to the share.
If it is, then there is a path that is just on the edge of being to long, and the target directory add enough to it to push it over the limit. Beyond that I agree with RandomNull, more info is needed.
