 +====== WHS and a Macintosh ======
 +I was making a copy some WHS server folders so that I could take a small section of the filesystem with me on holiday (for reference). ​ However half way through the copy I got an error dialog informing me that the copy could not access the source disk.  WTF?
 +Investing I found that some of the files and directories has been created on the WHS server using Samba from a Macintosh. ​ These had **trailing spaces in their file names**. ​ Win32 will not allow this via the UI however samba subverts this API.

 +The solution was to SMB mount this filesystem onto any old Linux box, or the original Mac, and rename the directories and files appropriately.

 +smbmount //​cheese/​Users /cheese
