Windows 2008 Windows 2012
Posted on 2014-04-10
I've recently deployed a Windows 2012 server. I needed to complete a data transfer from Windows 2008 to Windows 2012.
I'm unable to transfer several hunder files due to this:
The file name(s) would be too long for the destination folder. You can shorten the file name and try again, or try a location that has a shorter path.
There are too many files in too many subfolders to try and locate and individually rename them.
What other options do I have?
Why does Microsoft allow the creation of files with long file names, and not allow those files to be able to be transferred to a newer server??
Thanks in advance.
