If you want to move documents from one site to another site then Send to connection is a way to go.


However if you just want to save it in local drive then you can download a copy of it.In the ribbon above you can see download a copy link

Whenever you copy files with long path names (more than 255 characters), you always face this issue. So try using 3rd party tools (such as GS Rich Copy 360)..Microsoft inbuilt file copying mechanism really fails at this..
