Subdirectory or file TST already exists. <---- normal for WinXP. case insensitive
The system can not find the path specified. <---- abnormal. case sensitive !

S:\TEMP> erase tst\SECOND\FILE <---- normal. case insensitive. bug does not affect the files, only directories!!!

shared folder placed on XFS partition of host.

i found similar ticket  437, but is associated with a very old version of vbox

Why are the directory names are case-sensitive, but filenames not? How to fix?

Cannot reproduce. I tested this with an ext3 file system on the host but this shouldn't matter.
