Windows Backup/Mac Files

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?YW1hY2dlZWs=?=, Jul 19, 2006.

  1. I have a WinXP Pro system setup as a file server for 10 clients. 4 are Macs
    running OS X and the rest are Windows XP Pro boxes with SP2 installed. The
    file server, a Windows XP Pro box has SP2 installed also (as well as all the
    requisit updates and patches). A drive failed and I'm having to recover it. I
    used Windows Backup Utility for the initial Full Backup and have it
    performing Daily Incremental backups. While the restore has yet to complete,
    I'm a little afraid of what I'm seeing. Many of the files created on the Macs
    are showing up as two files. It appears that the backup split the Mac files
    into their respective Data and Resource forks.

    Here's a sample of what I'm seeing...

    S:\
    banners2.xls
    ._banners2.xls
    giftcards.tif
    ._giftcards.tif

    If someone out there is familiar with Mac/Windows files, could you let me
    know if I should go out and drown in a bottle of Jack or am I imagining
    things?
