I am using 2 servers: one with linux operating system that support case sensitive and the backup server is a windows 2008 r2 server that also support case sensitive after installing unix based applications and testing it with c shell

I am using the lftp command on the linux to backup case sensitive files to the windows server but it removes old files instead of copying it with the new case sensitive ones.

Is there any solution to copy and keep the case sensitive files on the windows 2008 r2 server ??

What parameters are you giving the ftp command? My guess is that one of them moves files instead of copying. – Taegost Jul 25 '13 at 13:25
set ftp:ssl-allow no set ftp:passive-mode no lcd $SOURCEFOLDER mirror --reverse --verbose $SOURCEFOLDER $TARGETFOLDER – kingk110 Jul 27 '13 at 7:35
