Hi Jim \\thatnode\c$\*.*
Retrieves only files in the C$ root directory with a period in the name. If you want everything under c$ I'd use ret \\thatnode\c$\* -fromnode=thatnode -subdir=y you will also have to specify a destination as without it will try to put the data back into \\thatnode I find it interesting that you use -fromnode. I had sort of forgotten it exists. I normally use -virtualn and if necessary change the node password.

I'm trying to retrieve some old archived data with dsmc from thatnode to thisnode, and I seem to have forgotten the strange magic involved in correctly specifying the paths. So on thisnode, dsmc> q filespace -fromnode=thatnode shows me things like \\thatnode\c$ \\thatnode\e$ \\thatnode\f$ but something like dsmc> ret \\thatnode\c$\*.* -fromnode=thatnode and various permutations just returns a message about nothing being archived by that path name.
