I don't often use this function on such a large number of files/subdirectories,
but recently I added another 64GB HPFS partition to my current configuration.
I needed to move a large number of images (photos, etc) from the old partition
to the new and so I attempted to use the Xworkplace 'pickup/copy' functionality.
No issue there really...all file counts and sizes match...the strange thing is
that in my VIO sessions all filenames appear to be truncated to 8 chars on the
Again, these are both HPFS partitions, maybe this is how things have always
worked, but in all honesty I have either never seen this or this is something
About to test the old 'xcopy' standby next...I am not expecting to see this
bevahiour though...it has always worked perfectly for me before.
Any ideas what's going on? Is there a setting somewhere that I'm missing?
CP2 with FP6, 4 core with SMP
HPFS386 w/ 128MB cache

target drive = uncached
partitions are on separate drives (not 2 partitions on the same drive)
