Copy casesensitive enabled folders

Post by *theukenedy » 2019-11-07, 02:59 UTC

When folder case-sensitivity is enabled (https://www.howtogeek.com/354220/how-to-enable-case-sensitive-folders-on-windows-10/), the folder can contain files and folders with the same name (lower-case and upper-case version), such as "a" and "A".
When copying the files, can the case sensitivity of the new folder be enabled?

In TC 9.5x new folders inside a case sensitive folder can inherit the case sensitivity:
InheritCaseSensitiveDir=1 If a folder has the "case sensitive names" option set, inherit it when creating new folder inside
0=off
1=on only when not needing admin rights (tcmadmin)
2=always on

The problem is that copying case sensitivity requires admin rights. Therefore to use this when working as normal user, you need to set
InheritCaseSensitiveDir=2

Total Commander will then ask for admin rights when it encounters a case sensitive folder.
