Files that are backed up with ARCserve 6.x are truncated to eight Characters

Version 1

    The SnapServer files are backed up with ARCserve 6.x. Although the files on the Snap Server are backed up, the file and folder names are truncated to eight characters. Files on the Novell/Microsoft server are not truncated by ARCserve. How can the full (long) file names be backed up by ARCserve?

    ---Solution---

     

    The truncation is only visual, limited by the display. The software shows the name as truncated, but when the files that have been backed up are restored again, the long file names should indeed be there. If the files fail to restore with full long file names, please contact TechSupport to determine the nature of the problem.
