Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-09-11 14:18:15 UTC
On a case-insensitive filesystem (Windows, MacOS), when a rename of a file/folder only changes the case, that causes an error that the filename is already in use. MD could make this easier by automatically renaming the file/folder via an intermediate name: file.foo -> File.foo~tmp -> File.foo
