Hi P.O.
what's the exact error message?
what commands are you using to back "up downwards" (shell? Rexx?)
the maximum path length on Unix typically is not 255, rather much longer
"say .RexxInfo~maxPathLength" will give you the maximum path length Rexx is
aware of
(though not all Rexx functions necessarily care about it; e. g. Unix
SysFileTree will return arbitrary-length file paths, as necessary)
