problems with folders with long paths
Posted on 2003-10-23
The former administrator and my current boss planned a very heavy folder layout, that now is full of folders with very long path names on and the "old" server.
Now there are problems with the new backup sistems, I cant even copy the folders as they are to a new server.
This is a question with many questions... :)
Basically, what can I do?
If i have to change all the folder names, what tools could help us to do this, like "path lenght counters" or once we choose a shorter name for a folder that all folders with that name use the shorter code, etc...
Any tools where I can restrict: the lenght of a folder name and total path length, even restricting or controlling what folder names can be used would be great, something like "folder management"... been googling but havent found anything like that yet.
Or is there a way that I can temporarily set a higher path length on the server, that is now running w2k.
