I am using a SUN SparcStation 5 with Solaris 1.1.2 - SunOS 4.1.4 and
OpenWindows 3 and I am having a problem with OpenWindows Fule manager 3.
When using the OpenWindows FileManager V3 Application to display a directory
tree on the top of the window and file icons below, if we select a directory
icon ( either in the tree on top or in the file window ) and Drag It ever so
slightly, and drop it on itself ( usually by accident ) the error message
"rename invalid argument" occurs and the directory is GONE ( never to be
seen again ). Is there any way to recover from this and restore the Lost
It seems to me that OpenWindows should give some warning in this case before
dispersing your data into the ether.
We are finding that the safest way to do file management on the Sparc is to
do it from a Windows 98 machine using CuteFTP across the network. Windows 98
for Sparc anyone ?
