Not sure whether it's a TC, its fs plugin interface or certain plugin thing (NTFS FileStreams (v2)), and whether or not it's a correct behavior, but if in the panel TC shows the filename for the item
\\NTFS - streams\C:\path\SomeInternetShortcut.url\::$data
as ::$data (all characters lowercase), Ctrl(+Shift)+Enter puts the name into command line as ::$DATA (all characters uppercased), and the same happens if filename is copied to clipboard using one of TC internal name copy commands.

It seems to happen only for lowercase names, because the name characters case is not changed if these actions applied to names that TC shows as all uppercase or different case, like following:
::$SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR
:favicon:$DATA

Please verify at "Configuration - Options - Display" that you have disabled option "Show old 8.3 filenames lowercase (like explorer)" and try again ...

After I disabled it, TC shows the name uppercase (::$DATA). Thanks for the hint, now it's clear how to reproduce lowercase ::$data name in file panel.

The bugreport is about the difference in how TC shows the name in panel and how it copies it or puts to cmdline, which is making name different with "Show old 8.3 filenames lowercase (like explorer)" TC option enabled. I think it's expected that copied name should have the same characters case as shown in panel.

Apparently not a bug(?).

Well, it looks like a bug for me: I think TC should copy or put the name into cmdline exactly how it shows it in panel filelist.

This must be an option. By default TC copies the exact file name as it is in the FAT table.

This was changed for network shares like Netware which are case sensitive. The "Show old 8.3 filenames lowercase" option only affects the display in the file lists, not the file operations.

I understand the reason why it works like this now.
Still I whould like to request an option for future TC versions to copy or put to command line the names as TC show it in panel.

Maybe a Suggestions forum would be better place for this topic?
