I am mounting an ntfs filesystem on a Linux box using the fuse filesystem driver ntfs-3g. I am then doing some operations on the filesystem (
git clone to be precise) unmounting and attaching the filesystem to a Windows machine.
Here's the fun part. The git clone creates two directories,
Images/, which because it's Linux git is fine. Then when I attach that partition to the Windows VM and build, one of the tools blows up because it only sees the
Is there a way I can get ntfs-3g to work in case insensitive-yet-preserving mode, the same way Windows does?
I tried using
lowntfs-3g but that makes everything lowercase which also doesn't work for me.
I have tried the mount option
