'[OT]: Windows-linux file transfer problems...'

Can any Win & Linux expert help me with this problem?...

- Win2K (NTFS) drive crashed.
- Mounted it as secondary drive to another Win2K machine,
  but Win2K couldn't recognize the partitions.
- So instead, I mounted as secondary to a Linux installation
  and it was able to read the drive and copy the files over
  to the Linux (Fat32) drive.  Verified that I can read the
  files properly once transferred to the Linux drive, and
  that the filenames and extensions are good.
- Now, I boot up a clean Win2K installation with the Linux
  (Fat32) drive as a secondary (now holding the recovered
  files), but all file extensions are showing up as...
        FILE1.{_1
        FILE2.{_2
  The filenames themselves are okay, just the extensions
  are messed up as <curly-brace>, <underscore>, and a
  sequential number.
- Booted into Linux again, and the file extensions are
  still good.

Anyone know why?  All I need now is to get the recovered
files from the Linux Fat32 FS to a Win2K (NTFS) installation.

Thanks.
-Neil.

Can you leave the drive on the Linux machine and share the drive with
samba?  Then you could copy the files across the network.  Other than that
I dunno.  I've often mounted FAT32 and NTFS volumes on Linux boxen and
haven't seen the problem you're having.

You have to mount your FAT32 as "vfat" so Linux can work with the
Windows long file names.

"mount -t vfat /dev/hdb0 /mnt/win" , for example

Hope this helps.
Francisco

BTW, Linux is cool!!! ;-)

With both drives mounted and running Linux, it's okay.
Same 2 drives mounted, but running Win2k, it's not okay.

Will look into setting up samba, but I'm limited to one
laptop, 3 physical drives and a secondary drive-tray.
I'm travelling currently so away from home base.  And don't
expect to return for months.

I just thought of tarring all the files under Linux and
seeing if it extracts okay under Win2k.  I'll be back...

"Boxen" ???  Bwahaahaahaahaahaahaa!!!

Cheers,
-Neil.

Ahhh... but the only FAT32 I have is the one with Linux
on it.  All the rest are NTFS. :-(

I suppose I can create another FAT32 partition somewhere.

Thanks,

Ding, ding, ding!  We have a winner!

Just tarred one of the recovered subdirs to a .tar file and
unzipped under Win2k and it worked!  Just need to do it for
the rest.  Okay, it's manual, and not as classy as some other
solution, but it'll get the job done.

Cheers,
-Neil.
