Hello All,

I have encountered a Source to Target copying case in which there are some files in the Source directory having more than 256 characters in their FULL PATH names. When such files are being copied by Vice Versa Pro 2, the program generates errors complaining on the files' full path names and refuses to copy those files.

However, when I use the Windows Explorer (in Win XP) to copy those files, the Windows Explorer could handle such files and copy them correctly.

Are there any options in Vice Versa Pro 2 that I could set to release the 256 characters constraint in the file's full path name ?

Thanks for your attention.

Regards
Lawrence

Hello Site Admin,

Suppose I have files with more than 259 characters path name in "C:\Source" and want to copy the files into "D:\Target". Then both the "Source" and the "Target" directory would have files with more than 259 characters path name. Should I specify the task in ViceVersa Pro 2 as :

\\?\C:\Source\ <to> \\?\D:\Target\

Thanks for any suggestion on this specification.

Regards
Lawrence

Hello

yes, the \\?\ notation is needed for both if long paths can appear on both sides.

thanks

I have been trying to work out how to solve the 259+ path name issue.

Made the changes to Source and Destination, but still got errors.

Then realised I needed to make the changes to the Archive path as well!

Hey presto - it now works with no errors!

Thanks TGRMN for a great product.

Just need it to work with webservers now so I can sync files on them too!

Hello David,

do you have a SFTP connection to the web server (on top of simple FTP) ?
We plan to support SFTP in a future release.

thanks
