The standard Mac file system is (and has always been since the first
Macintosh in 1984) case-insensitive. In recent versions of Mac OS X,
you can opt to have a case-sensitive file system instead. If you
desire this you can back up your data, reformat your disk with Disk
Utility and then restore your data. However, some developers of Mac
software have also assumed that the file system is always case-
insensitive, and their programs may fail to work properly if you do
this, so I do not recommend it. Examples:
