Fixing Git Commit Not Replacing Folder with Changed Case on Mac

If you’re working on a Mac and using Git, you might run into an issue where Git won’t replace a folder that has had a change in case. For example, if you have a folder called “Article” and you change it to “article”, Git might not recognize the change and won’t replace the old folder with the new one.

Fortunately, there is a solution to this problem. You can configure Git to not ignore case sensitivity by running the following command:

1
git config core.ignorecase false

This will tell Git to consider changes in case when replacing files or folders.

It’s important to note that changing this setting may cause issues if you’re working on a project with others who are using different operating systems. Windows, for example, is not case sensitive, so if you change this setting, it may cause issues for Windows users.
