Didn't worked for me:
I put:

\\?\C:\Users\User\Documents\ as source and

\\?\G:\Backup\Documenti\ as target

It gives me the error "too long path...refer to the guide".
The backup is to a USB external HD.
Thanks.

If you have \\computer\share\ , use \\?\UNC\computer\share\

Use \\?\UNC\ instead of just \\?\ for UNC paths, that is replace the starting \\ with \\?\UNC\

thanks


So glad I read this. I was thinking I was missing something. Didn't think it would be as simple as putting "\\?\UNC\" instead of just "\\" for the actual UNC path. So glad I was able to use this. I had about 6 GB of files that were being skipped because of this.

I am trialing ViceVersa Pro3 and trying to get \\?\ working. As per to instructions from I updated the source and target but doesn't seem to work. The target with UNC path doesn't seem to like the additional syntax as it's not recognizing the target path.

Appreciate your help.

thanks,
Yoga

We purchased the software yesterday, because we are moving our files to 365. I have tried the //?/ but it does not work.

Hi, thank you for purchasing ViceVersa. Does your SharePoint version support long paths > 256 chars?

Hi, I just looked and I have version 2015 and when I checked for newer versions, it told me there was 2.50 or something.

Bottom line is I want to be able to do long filenames too so, what version do I need and will it cost me anything to upgrade?

Thanks and LOVE my vice versa. I used to have laplink but had nothing but problems with it.

George

We detected that OneDrive is unable to copy long path names and this is stopping the syncing of OneDrive agent , I know OneDrive itself can support long path but not from windows to Onedrive .
I know there are some tools can do this job like Syncback , Gs Richcopy 360 , Goodsync ...etc but I am not familiar with these , I am only familiar with ViceVersa .
So, Can Version 3 build 3003 do this job now with Onedrive?
