thanks. that worked. I came to the same conclusion by removing all of the filters and then re-adding one and seeing how it showed up and the \\?\ was indeed in front of it.

Thanks for the quick response.

I cant seem to get the target to except the long file names, below is what I have tried with no luck on the target, the source long file name feature is working.


WORKS:

\\?\D:\ <-- Works Source

\\slc\D\ <-- Works for the target

\\192.168.1.10\d\ <-- Works for the target


WONT WORK:

error message stats that the system cannot find the patch specified, I have tried many variations.

\\?\slc\D\ <-- Won't Work for the target , I have tried \\?\slc\D, \\?slc\D\ and others

\\?\192.168.1.10\d\ <-- Won't Work for the target either and many variations

Hi, please use

\\?\UNC\slc\D\

and

\\?\UNC\192.168.1.10\d\

literally, do not replace UNC.

\\?\UNC\ is used for network paths

I used the info in http://www.tgrmn.com/web/kb/item31.htm to setup long file support and it did not work. Errors are:

Subfolder Filter "\\Solr1\DDD01\Jeff\$RECYCLE.BIN\ '' does not
apply to neither source or target folder(s).

Subfolder Filter "\\Solr1\DDD01\Jeff\My Documents\A - ALLY\"
does not apply to neither source or target fold er(s).

The configuration for the backup was updated with the following in the SOURCES AND TARGETS area.

\\?\Solr1\DDD01\Jeff\ <to> \\?\J:\Backup\Jeff\

What do I need to do to fix it? I works fine if I remove the \\?\

Thanks!

Instructions from your website: http://www.tgrmn.com/web/kb/item31.htm

To enable this in a specific folder use the prefix "\\?\".
For example, to allow paths longer than 259 characters in c:\folder\backup\ use \\?\c:\folder\backup\ as source (or target, or archive folder) in ViceVersa PRO.
Using "\\?\" permits a maximum path length of approximately 32,000 characters composed of components up to 255 characters in length.

To specify a UNC path, use the "\\?\UNC\" prefix.
For example, "\\?\UNC\<server>\<share>".

I just can't get my profiles to work with long file paths.

If I gave you the folder addresses, would you be kind enough to show me the correct syntax to get long path names accepted please?

Target:- \\?\unc\QNAP\Backup Drive 2\Television
