Old 8.3 file names are still kicking in the 2008 era
A note from Tony:
Some information for your after using yor blogs for years for help and assistnace...
If you happen to have old DOS / Netware applications that use data off a network share... yes they are still out there.... and work in vista....
By defualt SBS 2008 has 8dot3 filenames turned off and these old applications will not work..
run cmd as Administrator
fsutil behavior query disable8dot3 ( result of 1 is on o is off )
fsutil behsvior set disable8dot3 0
REboot required.... but to reset the filenames the data has to be copied off the server, deleted and copied back...file by file...
robocopy to the rescue again...
Thanks for your Help
