Recently I copied some 1000s of folders/files from a NTFS partition to a Slackware 10.2 box (with Reiserfs).
As I am a moron, I forgot to mount the NTFS partion with unicode or UTF-8 support.
The result is a lot of files have 'funny' symbols in their names instead of ç, ã, í etc.
I ended up with a lot of messages on syslog. This is, I have 4324 messages like:
kernel: NTFS: Unicode name contains a character that cannot be converted to chosen character set. Remount with utf8 encoding and this should work.
Now, that I don't have the original files anymore, I noticed that some folders/files were not copied from NTFS to Linux.
So, my question is: altought I have 99% of the files (some with bizarre symbols on their names, but I know what they are), I missed some files really important. Is it possible that they were not copied at all?
Let me reformulate the question:
Does this kernel message means that the file was not copied, or it was copied but it was impossible to keep the original name?
