There are some programs that require a case-sensitive filesystem, and others that require case-insensitive. Even though Apple warns against using case sensitive file systems, in some situations it is useful.
What programs have trouble with Case Sensitive (HFSX) systems?
What are the work-arounds?
In general, the problem is that the developers have a file in their app called
FOO, but try to access the file by the name
foo. In an HFS+ system that is case preserving but case insensitive, searching for
foo will find
FOO. That is not the case in HFSX. The general solution is therefore to
- Find the misnamed file or folder
- Make a copy, a link, or rename so the expected name is found
