file case sensitivity in NT/Windows 2000
Posted on 2001-08-13
NT is apparently case sensitive. However, I believe that it may just preserve case. I am wishing to copy files of the following format to the same directory on NT:
I have read a microsoft article suggesting that NT 3.1 will do this. The reason I wish to do this is to copy data that has been generated on Linux systems onto an NT partition. Linux's ext2 file system supports this naming natively.
I think that NT is capable of this. I think that in order to provide backwards compatibility it disallows two files of the same name to be created in the same directory.
Is there any registry hack or other than can enable files with the same name but different case to be created in the same directory in NT4 or Win2000.
