Folks,

i'm getting a source path to long error when trying to restore a previous versions folder. I read about Subst but do not understand how to make the path map when it's coming from a restore point. for example I tried copying the location with the time stamp and opening up a command prompt to map the location to a virtual drive letter using the Subst command but I got file path not found.  any help with be appreciated I will need some guidance on getting this to work. or if someone knows another way to get this done, I am open to suggestions. thanks

this question is worth 500 points.
