Using a PC RAID to backup files

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a PC (Win2K) on my network with a RAID setup that I want to use it to backup my files from my Mac (PM G5 OSX.4.6). The problem is that I have numerous files with names apparently too long for windows to handle and copy aborts. Any suggestions? Thank you!

I found a solution, I used a program called "iBackup" to create an archive at the destination, this avoiding the "name too long" error.

I've never seen a "name too long" error. Just how long as your filenames? AFAIK Win2K and MacOS X have the same limit (255 characters). I could be wrong about OSX's limit, I haven't had reason to really check it.
