While replacing the Iphoto library from the Time Machine backup after replacing the ard drive I get the following error message:

You can use iPhoto Library not copy, because it has the same name as another item on the destination volume, and that volume does not distinguish between uppercase and lowercase letters in filenames.



Who knows a solution?

    Hello Hans,


    It seems the TM drive was formatted Case Sensitive!? And this drive is Case Insensitive!?


    So with case Sensitive we could have 2 different folders like...





    But with Case Insensitive they both appear as the same name & only one can exist.


    I'm not sure the fix for yjis, but it seems the current one would have to be renamed or something. And no idea how iPhoto would react to that, possibly no problem if not running while you do this.
