Sharepoint Server Site Restore Issue
Posted on 2014-12-18
Having an issue with a couple Sharepoint sites...
Had a server crash and the only recent Sharepoint backup was the Site Collection backups. I've been able to recover most sites using the stsadm command, but having an issue with 2 of the Sites restoring.
The error received is:
"One or more files in the restored site collection will exceed the maximum supported path length. Please select a shorter destination site address and try again."
These 2 sites are the largest and most used on the site and are 20+ GB and 40+ GB respectively.
Some of the things I've seen online relate to some contents in the site exceeding the 250 character limit and causing the restore to flake out.
I've been on with Microsoft for the last 4 days and would appreciate any assistance.
Maybe someone has run into an issue like this before.
Maybe someone knows of a tool that can truncate file lengths the file paths in the created .dat file.
I'm pretty desperate. Would give 1000 points if I could...
