Dear All,

I have netapp configured with CIFS file sharing. One of our user deleted some folders and files and we are trying to restore from snapshot using windows system We browsed to the location and went to the property of the folder from which files missing and selected previous version and Opened 2 days before snapshot and when we try to copy the folder inside it is giving the error like

The source file name(s) are larger than is supported by the file system. Try moving to a location which has a shorter path name, or try renaming to shorter name(s) before attempting this operation.
The path is
\\\user_documents\EX-Employees\alosert\documents\Desktop Filez (¿Yesterday, ¿August ¿29, ¿2013, ¿¿8:00 PM)\

I think this is due to addition of the "(¿Yesterday, ¿August ¿29, ¿2013, ¿¿8:00 PM)" into the folder path.

Now How to retrieve those files and folders inside this folder
