file copy fails - path too deep



I am new to XP but have use win98 for years. At the end of MS Money I backup
my file to a USB connected external hard disk. This worked a few times but
now fails with messages such as path too deep and timeouts. I am running
Norton anti-virus. I have also tried copyig the file manually and it also
fails. I am able to copy other files to this disk - but large files seem to
take a long, long time.
Any ideas
