  • Share path

    I understand how to copy shares from one server to another.

    Is there a way to copy the path the share points to to the new server? I want the path to be the same but I want it to start in the root level folder \OrgData.

    Thank you.

    Re: Share path

    When you copy the shares there is a box at the bottom where you can specify the New Base Path. In that box you will enter in:


    You'll have to create that directory first, then when you copy shares they will keep the same structure as on the source computer, except under the OrgData directory.

      Perhaps I'm doing something wrong.

      This is the path of the share I'm copying:

      \\fstis-data1\e$\TISM shares\1MASMD

      This is the path that I end up with:


      This is the path I want to end up with:

      \\fsmas-data\d$\OrgData\TISM shares\1MASMD

      I've already created the directory OrgData.

        Try this for the base path:

        OrgData\TISM shares

        Make sure both the OrgData and TISM shares directories exist.

          I was hoping to avoid having to type out every share path since I have about 80 to create!
