    FYI - One of the more recent BC3 updates seems to have fixed the "subfolders represented as zero-byte files" issue so long as the "Follow symbolic links" option is on in the Session Settings Handling tab. No more issues with Microsoft DFS. Thanks again for a great product!

    Hi Michael,

    Was that an email or forum post from earlier? I'm searching through our records to try and join these two issues, but I'm having trouble digging up the report you mention.

    I reported a similar issue back near the beginning of the year... root folders on a Microsoft DFS (Distributed File System) looked like zero-byte files in BC3. I've never seen the issue in any other environment...and it certainly doesn't dissuade me from using BC3...I just don't use it with root folders on DFS file systems.

    BC is creating zero byte undeleteable files

    Having a problem I cant figure out. Sometimes when I compare a folder from a network paths files in the new root folder copy over as zero byte. I then cannot delete those files. I can use windows to copy the files overtop of the zero byte ones which work fine and creates the normal size files. If then compare the two BC lists then on separate rows as if they are non matching files.

    Its bit me a few times now and am nervous about using it.
    thanks.
Working...
