Long file names and restoring RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just switched latops and wanted to restore from WHS to my new laptop.  I accessed the backup of the old one and started to copy the files to the new laptop.

    It seems like a a number of files were not copied becaue the filenames (with all the sub directories I use to get organized) were too long.

    Is that something that is fixable or is it just the nature of the beast?

  • Can you give a specific example?
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • and where were you trying to restore to?  If it was another folder it's possible you went over the limit of 255 character for a filename.

  • I'd created a partition that I was restoring to.
