Hi, I have searched but have not come up with anything. I currently have a couple of subfolders that have become quite large and I want to make them their own share. I set up the share, and then tried to move the contents of the subfolders over. It is doing it, but it is going to take over a week to do so! I figure there has to be a better way to do this than how I am using windows.

thanks for any info in advance.

Have you tried to use the FTP server?
Unfortunately I can't remember if the FTP-Server of Buffalo
supports "rename". But it should be worth a try.
If this does not work for you, you should look into getting
telnet access to your box. You can then move (mv) the
directories if you got user root before. Moving directories on
Unix is a cheap operation.

Please do not use private mail (PN/M) to ask questions. Use the proper forum instead. (me)

RAID (no matter which level) never ever substitutes a backup. (me)
