Shared folders appear in different case when accessed by IP address? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi - I'm on Win 10 TP Build 9879, and I also have a Win 10 TP Server Build 9841, with the Essentials Role installed, and my pc is joined to the Essentials domain

    But "some" of my server folders appear in a different case when I view my server folders (from my pc, in Explorer), by typing \\servername, or by \\192.168.1.xxx (which is the IP address of my server)

    eg. NETLOGON  & SYSVOL appear in UPPERCASE when viewed by \\servername, but in lowercase when viewed by \\192.168.1.xxx

    ip address

    I also have a couple of folders created through the Essentials GUI in UPPERCASE, that also display in this way

    I've Googled & Bing'd to no avail - does anyone have any ideas why this is happening ?

    ip address

    I get the same results. not sure why, but it is entirely cosmetic. NTFS
    respects case but is not case sensitive.
