FTP Program which keeps directory case sensitivity? 416bc msg:4249993 8:32 pm on Jan 6, 2011 (gmt 0) I use filezilla to transfer all my files, but recently while working with a magento site, I noticed a lot of folders like this: A a B C c D d but when I download them, they all go into: A B C D The lowercase folders are merged with the uppercase ones, this creates large problems. I am using windows 7, is there any FTP program which can preserver case sensitivity?

The problem is not with the FTP client, it is with the operating system. Windows file and directory names are case-insensitive, Unix-based operating systems are case-sensitive. There is nothing you can do to maintain case-sensitivity in Windows, and as the OS can't distinguish between C and c, then no Windows FTP program can either. 416bc msg:4250016 9:25 pm on Jan 6, 2011 (gmt 0)
Ok, thank you. I knew it was a linux/windows thing, but I thought a setting in a ftp program could force the setting. Thanks for the reply!
