LongSave is used to save the list of long file names and short names to a comma delimited ascii text file. The short names can then be backed up or zipped or copied with utilities that are not long file name aware. After the files are transfered LongSave can then use the ascii file to restore the original long file names.
To use LONGSAVE you have to tell it a directory to save and the name of a file to save the names to. If you don't specify a file name then the file LONGSAVE.ASC is created in the specified directory. By default LONGSAVE reads the long names in the specified directory and all directories below it.
Usage: LONGSAVEAs of now LONGSAVE must be run from a DOS session under Windows 95. It will not run outside of Windows, although a future version of Windows might fix this. It also will not run under the original release of NT4, but I would hope Microsoft will fix this soon. It will work on NT4 servers from a Windows 95 workstation. It also works on Netware servers that are configured to support long file names.
/W Example: LONGSAVE C:\WINDOWS ; saves the names to ascii file LONGSAVE.ASC in C:\WINDOWS LONGSAVE . /W ; restores filenames in current directory from LONGSAVE.ASC LONGSAVE F:\WINDOWS SAVE.ASC /W ; restores long names in F:\WINDOWS from file SAVE.ASC
LongSave is sold separately or as part of the Computer Tyme Network Survival Kit. It it written in my MarxMenu script language and you get complete SOURCE CODE with the product.
