Sorting Files And Capitalized And Non-Capitalized File Names

Recommended Posts

Apparently bittorent sync on an android tablet distinguishes between capitalized and non-capitalized words in the file names. I am not sure whether this is an android thing or a bittorrent sync issue. It would be nice when BT sync is able to ignore this capitalization when sorting on an adroid device.

I believe this is an android/linux thing - "android.txt" is not the same file as Android.txt" like it would be in windows, and this affects capitalization similarly. I have similar issues with several file explorer apps on android.

When I create several folders with the same name but different number at the end, like chapter 1, chapter 2, chapter 3, ..., chapter 10, the order in BTSync (Android) is not correct.

 

Modern operating systems show them correctly (just tried in OSX), but BTSync shows in the wrong order of: chapter 1, chapter 10, chapter 11, chapter 2, chapter 3 etc.

 

You can of course rename the folders chapter 01, chapter 02, but this is so 90s..
