Hi all guy´s. I´m searching for something like a copy command that not only copies the files in a directory to another, plus the the subdirectories in it with it files and sub-subdirectories, and that no break long file names (any seems like F5 of Norton Commander).
Do anybody know some thing like this?

Best regards.

DOS 7.10 xcopy cuts off LFNs if you are not booting the 32 bit OS which provides LFN support. Not an xcopy limitation.

There are DOS LFN providers. I don't have a link but one of these other DOS commandos will.

K, M2. recently I found NDN (Necromancer DOS Navigator), work fine although it is so extensive I hadn´t try all it. It supports LFN´s, and is very configurable. Since I downloaded it, and triyed, I found only a bug, I write to the makers but I had no response, but is minor and the program is strongly recommendable. The current version is 2.31. Google it if you want. Thank for helping me and for you intresting posts.

Best regards.
