Some folders on our network are truncating causing problems with programs.
example
\\server\shared\user\home_folder\directory truncates to
\\server\shared\.\.\.

I have spent several hours on this.   Any help would be appreciated.

This is happening on Windows 7 Pro and is only an issue with some network shares, not all

Are there any symbols in the sharename path of the shares affected, as opposed to just letters and numbers? If so, try removing it from the path and see if that makes a difference.

We finally tracked down the issue.  We have a riverbed WAN caching appliance that seemed to be causing the problem.  I do not know what our riverbed admin changed specifically, but it did address the issue.

Perarduaadastra,
Thank you for responding to this.

The issue turned out to be our WAN caching appliance.  I do not have details on what was changed on the appliance to fix the issue
