    Hello Community,


    I'm having an issue. I want to transfer all the files in a repository to the same path in other server.


    When i'm transfering the files and i have this error:




    There's a procedure for this transfer? Or what can i do about it...?

    What command/utility are you using to transfer the files?

    Normal windows transfer of files.

    You might want to define a Windows share of the destination directory and then try copying to the share.

    well this is a MS Windows limitation.

    As suggested by Lindsay you can workaround this by a network share reducing the path.

    using a command line example:


         net use z: \\my destination\folder\path


    then use z: as your destination to copy over

         xcopy <your sourcerepositoryfolderpath>  /E/K/Y


    Be careful with /Y as this will overwrite any existing files with same names in destination (may you don't want just take this parameters out).

    I would say to in general be careful about how long the path name is in general. Aside from problems copying files, we've seen problems with creation of attachments in the path as well.
