Version 1

    Is there any way to make the NFS version case sensitive (as NFS is)?  There are problems moving directory structures from UNIX boxes because some of the names collide and files get lost / overwritten.  This is a fairly severe limitation.<br><br><b>This information applies to the following Product(s):</b><br>

    ---Solution---

     

    The SnapServer preserves case but is not case sensitive. This means that there cannot be two files or folders in the same directory with names differing only by case, such as FILE.TXT and file.txt. <p>
    The reason for this is to maintain cross compatibility with other operating systems that are not case sensitive.
