Summary0017786: Improved messaging on failed file operations (path length)
DescriptionIf the user performs operations that would result in unsupported path lengths, MM fails in different ways, and in all cases fails to explain to the user what has happened:

1) Move track from Location > path 1 to Location > path 2 (which is too long)
--> nothing happens!
2) Edit filename in place at Location > Path 1
--> file inaccessible error
3) Move track from Location > path 1 to Folders > path 2
--> An error has occurred while moving path1 to path2. Do you want to try again

Ideally MM should indicate something like:
'<Operation> failed: <explanation>'

Moving path1 to path2 failed: Path is too long.
Renaming path1 failed: Path is too long.
Renaming path 1 failed: File is read-only.
