git conflict with differently cased directory name

I am using msysgit 1.8.1, and I am running into an issue with directory casing. I have the core.ignorecase set to true. But I have a case where git seems to have the folder under two different casings. So when I do a git add -A, it picks up the change to a particular file under the path


  • Git SVN case sensitive folder names
  • Git seeing imaginary files (case sensitivity)
  • Is git not case sensitive?
  • Git not showing star next to current local branch
  • Why are Github project document page urls case sensitive? What are the negative effects?
  • Git on windows: Can't switch branch after renaming a file (only changed case)
  • but the path


    always shows as an untracked change. This doesn’t seem to cause any problems, but it will be an issue if I roll this out to other developers. How can I get git to not do this?

    This question is related to git add will not stage certain files

  • Git stash pop wants to merge
  • Move from visual studio online to github
  • Can't push/pull to Github using Gitbox after password change
  • Which git commit/branch contains this blob?
  • count line changes with git?
  • Which SCM to choose in this situation ? Redmine+git or Fossil or?
