    Hi Guys,

    i have done a really stupid thing!

    Current setup is a PowerMac G4 400 with a 40gig & 120gig hard drives. i have backed up the 120 gig across to my new 200gig removable backup drive which resides on a windows 2000 pro computer. i put the 120gig into the windows 2000 machine, formated it as NTFS and tried to copy all the stuff on the 200gig back to the 120gig.

    I get an error "cannot copy - the path is too deep" any idea's how to fix it?
    i guess that their is some illegal characters in the file names.

    any help is appreciated!
