I want to move thousands of folders and files from an old to a new storage system with Windows 2008 R2. Obviously a user with MAC OS has named hundreds of folders with characters - * and : - that Windows cannot read or rename, because it notices folders and files with illegal characters as invalid. In MAC OS these folders and files are valid.
So how can I batch rename these folders, in order to copy all the data to my new storage system within my Windows Server 2008 R2? Maybe with a renaming tool in MAC OS? Maybe with a renaming tool in Windows, that can read folders with illegal characters? Which one of them can search for such strange illegal characters, because searching with * finds all of the files and folders and : can also cause problems when searching.
I appreciate any help!
