I'll share the FTP might be faster but you'll have to deal with ownership and permission issues if you do that later.
I am trying to move files from one of my servers to another. The problem lies in the directory structure. There are folders in folders in folders.... and Windows cant see past (i think) 128 characters. My way around this is to map a drive to the required folder. But because I have to move all the files it would take years to move the data in this manner. Veritas cant even see down into the file structure so I cant do a redirected restore, and xcopy appears to be the same way. The Xcopy thing confuses me because i can do a 'dir /s' to give me a printout (and summary) of the numbers of files -which is ~100k.
Anybody know a way to move these to another server?
