Case Sensitive File Transfers/Overwrite

Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version:


When transferring files to FTP servers running on platforms such as Microsoft Windows files are overwritten without warning when they have the same name but differing case.

For example, when uploading a file HelloWorld.txt and then immediately uploading a second file named helloworld.txt the first file is silently overwritten by the second.

At a minimum, a checkbox in the Site Manager to tell FileZilla that the server is case-insensitive would be nice. Perhaps some sort of server case-sensitivity detection could be implemented, for example, using the response from the SYST command.
