SYMPTOMS
When you run the Spin.exe tool to import content from a Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2001 workspace to an area in Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003, some links still point to folders in the SharePoint Portal Server 2001 workspace.
CAUSE
This issue occurs when the folders that were converted by the Spout.exe tool contain spaces in their names. The spaces in the folder name are converted to the "%20" character code. When this behavior occurs, the Spin.exe tool cannot find a matching link to these altered folder names. Therefore, the Spin.exe tool does not import these folders into the new workspace area and instead uses the link to the older workspace location.
RESOLUTION
This problem is corrected in Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2003 Service Pack 1.
