    I was having the same issues, but for some reason if I convert the folder I want to import to a .zip file, I can then transfer into my vault. I had a folder with multiple sub-folders and files, so I pressed right-click and sent to compressed (zip) folder. I then opened the .zip folder and transferred the file into my vault. Hopefully it works for you guys.

    May I suggest Long P@th T00l (replace 0 with o and @ with a) It's the best fix you can get for this problem.

    Shortening the name is just one simple thing you can do in this case but if you really want to get rid of this issue totally, you should try GS Richcopy 360. It has helped me a lot in file synchronization, backup and error free file transfer. Hope it helps!
