SAMBA Shares and case sensitivity

    • OMV 1.0
    • SAMBA Shares and case sensitivity


      I have created a shared folder called "MY-FOLDER-1"

      Under the SMB/CIFS section I then created a share pointing to that created folder.

      The name which I type in the SMB/CIFS section is what is presented to the user when browsing the network, or accessing the path.

      I would like this to be "My Folder 1"

      However I cannot enter spaces, and no matter if I enter "MY FOLDER 1" or "My Folder 1" the case remains lower always.

      Is there a setting I can enable to make SAMBA case sensitive and allow me to type in spaces under the name?

    • There is no limitation with the case, i've just tested it. There is however a limitation with spaces in their name.
      You can submit feature request here

      edit: I thought you meant in the config, yes all in uppercase are listed in lowercase in the client side (win7 tested only).
      Also maybe a bug (not sure I guess I'll have yo check the documentation of Samba for this or another client OS)
