I’m really frustrated atm.. I’m trying to migrate all my data from my old notebook to my new one… well.. I’m still TRYING….

I’ve got some files with some ******* long and extraordinary characters so that windows can’t copy them 😦

I’ve also tried with linux but it coun’t create the folders.. I’m a bit lost atm what to do.. I’m trying to remove all the files with these crazy filenames but it takes time to find them using the crappy windows copying tool -.-

Edit: Ah.. good old linux 🙂 Can someone tell me why I haven’t thought about this before 😉

find . -name *"\?"*

For those who don’t know: this lists all files with unknown characters (which make problems under windows) of the current directory… now you can easily deal with them (unix/linux can handle them 🙂 )
