7005Re: Preserving ALLCAPS directory names on FAT partitions
- Jan 2, 2008Allow me to clarify:
I need to mount the FAT32 partitions using the shortname=winnt option.
How do I accomplish that automatically?
The uppercase->lowercase problem was fixed by doing the following:
mount /dev/sdc5 /share/hdd/data/HDD_1_2_1 -o async,shortname=winnt
But how do I tell the slug to use shortname=winnt option whenever it
mounts the vfat disks on bootup or on disk reconnect?
