  1. How to move sparse file maintening the real sparse dimensions


    Hi everyone,

    I need to move "sparse" files from one disk to another. Both ntfs obviously.

    I want the size occupied on the target disk to be the same as the source disk. So not the final dimension but the "sparse" dimension.

    How can I solve it?

    EDIT: I would like to make a script to move only files from a certain maximum size down.

    :)

  3. How to move sparse file maintening the real sparse dimensions

    @einstein1969,

    Unless I'm way off base, my understanding is that if you copy or move a sparse file from one NTFS volume to another NTFS volume, the sparse file will remain a sparse file. Have you actually tried this as a test to see if that is the case?
