Re: The Directory Name Is Invalid

Is this NFS partition a Unix partition?

There is also a difference in the way Windows and the standard Unix FS
handle file names. I wonder if you have two files with the same name, but
different casing. For example: "Foo.xml" vs. "foo.xml".

This is especially a problem with an already existing Unix NFS partition
mounted upon a Windows machine.

Try mounting that NFS partition on a Unix or Linux (but not a Mac) system
and see if there are duplicate file names that differ only in the letter
