PathTooLongException uses the HRESULT COR_E_PATHTOOLONG, which has the value 0x800700CE.

If your code does not have PathDiscovery permission, the error message for this exception may contain only file or directory names instead of full paths.

Full paths must not exceed 260 characters to maintain compatibility with Windows operating systems. For more information about this restriction, see the entry Long Paths in .NET in the BCL Team blog.
