Problems Transferring Files

Hey all, I suspect this is a Windows 2K related issue, but was wondering if
anyone else has run into it before.

Last night I was preparing to re-install Win2K on my workstation and decided
to back-up all my data, which was a first for me ; ).  Well, I dragged and
dropped my 'Documents and Settings' folder to my Samba home share and let it
ride.  I came back 20 minutes, it was 2 gigs worth of data, and Win2K
complained about 'Too Deep Nesting' and could no longer see the Samba server
at all, however my other PC didn't have a problem with it.

I don't think there was a nesting level issue, due to the fact that this was
the bottom most directory and it had already copied half of it, and after
rebooting it finished it.

Has anyone else had a problem like this?
