windows home server

posted 8/11/2008 5:32:06 AM by: timothy

the biggest flaw with windows home server is a 260 character limit on files that are to be duplicated using the storage balancing system.

a common thing that people want to do is mirror their user folder.

as it happens, i have deep paths on my computer that when copied under a logical hierarchy on the homeserver (such as \\homeserver\users\username\backup\computername\) are longer than the 260 character limit and fail to replicate.
