handle.exe case sensitivity bug in drive letter RRS feed

  • Question

  • The documentation for handle.exe states that the name match is case-insensitive.  It generally is, but it seems like the drive letter match is not case-insensitive.

    For demonstration, I just picked one of the many open files on my machine:


    -------------------------------

    C:\>handle.exe C:\Windows\System32\es.dll

    Nthandle v4.21 - Handle viewer

    No matching handles found.
