Description

On a Linux partition you can have two or more files or folders with the same name but different capitalization.

On a Windows partition, you cannot have two files or folders with the same name but different capitalization in the same folder.

This means that if you have two or more files or folders with the same name but different capitalization in the same folder on a Linux partition and merge it with a Windows partition, you will have only one file or folder with the same name as a result.

Sample scenario 1

  1. You have two directories with the same names but different capitalizations on a Linux partition:

    \folder\
    \Folder\

  2. You merge the Linux partition with the Windows partition;
  3. After the merge, you will have only one folder on the Windows partition. It will be named either folder or Folder. All the files from the two Linux directories will be in this one Windows folder.

Sample scenario 2

  1. You have two files with the same name but different capitalization in one directory on a Linux partition:

    filename.txt
    Filename.txt

  2. You merge the Linux partition with the Windows partition;
  3. After the merge, you will only one file. It will be either filename.txt or Filename.txt. The other file will be lost.
