> The “HFS+” file system on macOS/OS X can be created to be case-sensitive (at least it once was; not sure whether it still is). Did you perhaps do this in the distant past?
Yes, it is possibly to format a hard disk with HFS+ case-sensitive file system,
from diskutil info / I get
File System Personality: Journaled HFS+
Type (Bundle): hfs
Name (User Visible): Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
which confirms that it is the case-insensitive file system (else "Case-sensitive" would appear therein)
I am not sure but to change that I think I would need to re-format the hard-disk and thus re-copy from a backup all files, which, as anyway this is my book-disk would be quite an adventure !
