Dear Expert,

Whne  I try to unzip a jar jave library file on windows vista, some files are missing because the windows will
treat the file name of "ABC.class" same as "abc.clss"  that will let both files wiil be overswritten and only allow
final one of both ABC or abc.class file existed. People suggested me to extract it in Linux/Unix platform  but it doesn't
help when I reload it unzip directory into windows because of the similar reason just mentioned above.
How can I make WIndows file/directory system to be case sensitive similar to Java is also case senitive so that
we could extract the exact number of file from jar jave file without overwrite issue ?
