Unicode Conversion Utility

The Unicode Conversion utility is a command line utility that can be used to convert the file containing a list of files and folders with Unicode characters to a format that can be used to perform On-Demand Data Protection or Map File Restore operations.

An On-Demand Data Protection operation uses a content file which contains the list of files (with its full path) that must be backed up. Similarly, a Map File Restore operation requires a map file which contains a list of files to be restored with their corresponding restore paths. If the list of files in this content or map file contains files and folders with Unicode characters, the content or map file cannot be directly used to perform data protection or restore operation. The Unicode Conversion utility must be used to convert the content or map file to a format that can be provided as input to the On-Demand Data Protection or Map File Restore operations.

The Unicode Conversion utility is available on computers in which the Macintosh, Windows or Unix File System iDataAgent is installed.
