A directory path contains too many subdirectories or the directory path is too long to be processed. The path is a combination of subdirectories in the file specification and the default directory path set by the DEFAULT monitor command. Directory paths are limited to a total of 16 subdirectories and 80 characters (including any portion of the directory path specified by the current default path). Specify a shorter directory path in the file specification or in the DEFAULT command. If you are accessing a foreign disk that contains more than 16 nested subdirectories you cannot read the files in subdirectories nested deeper than 16 levels. In this case you must use the system that created the disk to copy the files to a directory that is nested less deeply.
