    yes, its OK to use "Long Path Tool". It can solve all these type of errors when copying and deleting files.

    ALWAYS verify the filesystem it self in cases like this.

    Logon as Admin,
    Get a command prompt (start->run) and enter CMD
    In the new window, type CHKDSK /F

    You may get something like "cant get exclusive control; run at next startup?" YES
    After it completes, it will then be safe to run other tools.

    Thanks for sharing this tip. I'll try it in case of this problem. I personally prefer to try these technical tricks instead of trying any tools.
