I created a folder on a website that used two capital letters in the folder name. Ie.http://www.test.com/TestFolder/index.html and now want to make another folder without the uppercase. Ie. http://www.test.com/testfolder/index.html but i cannot create that folder again. Is there away i can have the page redirect if someone put http://www.test.com/testfolder/index.html to automatically go to http://www.test.com/TestFolder/index.html ?

It sounds like your server is case insensitive.  Therefore you cannot have two folders of the same name with only case differences.

You could end up doing things to lowercase the path, but it is really not worth it.

Here is some info:

if the server is case insensitive the server will handle both ur URLs as same and will show the index.html in TestFolder

I found out that the server is case sensitive and the vendor already has printed material with the uppercase URL. Until I move the site to a new server, is three is way to fix this issue with some form of a script?

If the server is case sensitive then you should be able to have TestFolder created even if testfolder already exists.  If not then it is case insensitive.
