    Is there a tool to bulk copy files including long filenames

    Hi All,
    I am in the closing stages of moving to new servers.
    The one problem I have is that I cannot bulk move the users folders across to the new server. It keeps bombing out when it finds a filename that is too long.
    Any tips?
    Is there a tool that might copy them across or a tool that would truncate the file names?

    Thanks

    What are you currently using?

    I've found robocopy capable.

    Thanks, following your suggestions I found robocopy on wikipedia and found richcopy as a result which did the trick.
