i have a problem with case preservation WinSCP-ing from a Unix host to a windows machine.
i have several files in the same directory with the same name, but different case. eg: "seek" all in lowercase and "SEEK" in uppercase. they are distinctly different files under unix, but of course they overwrite in WinSCP when copying to windows.
i can't think of an easy solution, but perhaps here is an idea. could the file be renamed in such a format that would automatically be recognised by WinSCP when copying back?
(unix to windows)
SEEK would copy as SEEK
seek would copy as seek;;1
SeeK would copy as SeeK;;2
when WinSCP sees the ";;n" addition, it strips it off and keeps the case when copying back.
does this sound like a worthy addition?
and to quickly answer an obvious response - no, i can't TAR the files up because my version of TAR won't handle files greater than 2GB in size and my main databases are greater than this size. SCP-ing to another machine is my only easy way to backup files.
