Re: using rsync with Win32/UNC pathnames?
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
According to Tomasz Chmielewski on 4/1/2008 6:15 AM:
| In Windows, path can have only up to 260 characters.
In Windows, the ASCII functions can only handle up to 260 characters. But
the Unicode functions handle more. You may be interested in trying a
snapshot, where longer filenames are (mostly) supported, and in
particular, your use case of rsync with names longer than 260 characters
should work using POSIX-style paths.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
