can't write, error -1128 (path too long)


Recommended Posts

I have a backup that runs through a few Gigabytes and then stops with this message for several files "(file path) can't write, error -1128 (path too long)". How can I correct this? Is there a way to have Retrospect ignore the files that it is hanging on?


This is on Retrospect 7.6

We have updated Retrospect for Windows to 7.6.123. This new version adds support for SQL 2008 and Exchange 2007 CCR.


other fixes:

Error -1128 (path too long) stops some operations: Previous versions of Retrospect would stop in the middle of a duplicate or restore operation if the path of the file was too long. Retrospect now logs an error and continues.


User Initiated Restore (UIR): UIR did not work in the previous version of Retrospect; this issue has been fixed.


Improved Vista Compatibility: This updated version of Retrospect, when used with the Windows client version 7.6.107 or later, will correctly not back up or copy files, folders, or volumes that have been specified as "Private". After updating the Windows client you will need to redefine your private files/folders/volumes.


Support for MozyPro: This update adds support for MozyPro. Previously only MozyHome was supported from within Retrospect.


Exchange 2003 Enhancements:


This update fixes an issue in older versions where Exchange mailboxes were not automatically removed from Retrospects scripts when the mailbox was removed from the Exchange server.


Improved Compatibility with NAS devices: Older versions of Retrospect could hang when backing up to NAS devices with the Open File Backup add-on.
