I have a website archove iso with .rr_moved in root. I'm wondering whether to move it somewhere to make the tree more complete. The site seems to work fine. When I was extracting it, 7z didn't see .rr_moved so I used ultraiso for this, 7z, however, also generated some pop up's about duplicates names.I suppose that's possible if hosted on nix, but I was extracting in win, so I didn't know which to keep. Suggestions?

I typed this before I added futher details. The quality standards is low way of reduced storage requirements requiring me to type further, defeating its use. And no this isn't spam. If some power-hungry body is planning on deleting my question, don't. If you want you can edit it, since your work doesn't need to fit these quality standards.

I wonder if moving .rr_moved down a few folders will complete the tree and not break any links. Also whether ntfs permits longer pathnames than those by ISO9660 level-1. – nnbnb Jun 1 '11 at 6:28
I meant what's inside .rr_moved, not the folder itself. – nnbnb Jun 1 '11 at 6:29
Anything modern permits longer pathnames than ISO9660 level 1. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jun 1 '11 at 6:30

It sounds like the iso was generated with Rock Ridge extensions, but possibly not Joliet extensions. I recommend extracting it on a *nix system and reburning it appropriately.

After, I extract on nix, I don't think I need to burn it to disk or create another iso. I just want the tree available on win, so I could copy it over. I suppose extracting it on nix will take care of the .rr_moved contents, however I wonder if maybe 7z (on win) has the capacity to handle this properly on its own? In any case, the more important question is, since I plan to use the site on win, how do I keep files with the same names (they were probably different case) and whether html could rely on this different case to locate different files? – nnbnb Jun 1 '11 at 6:50
Anyway, thanks for replying. – nnbnb Jun 1 '11 at 6:55
