How does NetApp in Cluster Mode, treat spaces in the Windows directories that are Snapshotted?


A real newbie here doing some testing and experimenting Using the "Lab on Demand Intro to NetApp" in Cluster Mode.  When attempting to restore an individual file to my Jumphost, Windows Server using the NetAPP CLI, I get a file not found in Snapshot message.


I enter the following command:


    <Cluster1::> volume snapshot restore-file -vserver svm1 -volume Engineering -snapshot Vol_Engine -path /Large Copy/RHEL2/putty.log

It errors with the following reason:


    Reason: File /vol/Engineering/putty24.log not found in snapshot vol_engine


If I go back to the Windows server that has access to that directory and rename the folder to "LargeCopy" (no spaces),  take a new snapshot, modify or delete a file, "Snapshot restore-file" works.   



How does NetApp treat spaces in directories or folders created by Windows?


What should my command line look like after the "-path" parameter?
