Mac machine on a PC network with files that have PC wildcards
Posted on 2004-11-03
I have only 1 user on my network that uses a Mac, he is using a g4 with OSx 10.2.8(i think).
We have a server that he used to store all his artwork on that runs Windows NT4, He inherited alot of old artwork and quark files that have PC wildcards in them *'s in particlular.
My problem is we need to remove this machine off the network, and want to move all his data to the HP SAN that we have, my other co worker copied all his files to the san one night and the file associations broke so he could not open the quark files. We took an older mac that he keeps just for emergencies like this, and we have gotten everything to work, the files copy over using the mac and the associations stay for the newer machine.
the problem with this scenario is that ALOT of his files have wildcards in the names *'s mainly so they will not transfer to the new SAN, the old NT4 machine does not have ANY PC-MAC software on it that i can tell.
does anyone have any suggestions on what we can do to get this to work?
500 points since its extremely important that this gets done
