Shared Folder Names Revisited

This is a follow on to this post, because I wasn’t sure about this communities rules on resurrecting old threads.

The tip about using mount bind to mount existing data to a shared folder was exactly what I needed.

But I also ran into the issue where Nethserver doesn’t like any capital letters in the share names. Is there a hard and fast reason for this or can it be changed.

In the post, Giacomo makes the point that the Windows implementation is case insensitive, which is fine if you only use that share in Windows or this is a brand new share. I have the situation where I need to share an existing directory, that has a capital letter in it’s name, which is used both in both Windows and Linux, and is currently stored in hundreds, if not thousands, of file location references.

Cheers.
