please support APFS case sensitive on mac in your client

currently it's not possible to use your one drive client on my mac. the reason: my filesystem is APFS in case sensitive version

        Baffling - how could this have happened?!
        The Google ecosystem is looking better and better by the day.

        THat's ridiculous how Microsoft dumb and stubborn not to have it worked as all the rest competitors are cool with it!

        For god's sake how long should it take?!!

        I really enjoy all the convenience that Office 365 provides and would love to be able to use the OneDrive client on my Mac.

        It is still surprising to find this sort of limitation.

        This can't still be a problem - it's months (and least 7 )since this was raised.

        Come on Microsoft.

        The only reason why this is not allowed that I can think of, is that Microsoft is craр and loves error messages. A file synchronization app doesn't need to care about the file system, because it doesn't work at that level. Filesystems are managed by the operating system's kernel and the basic APIs to access them are the same for every filesystem. This is an artifical limitation, nothing more.

        I don't have another hard disk to install it on.
        And I can't install it on a removable "thumb drive" - this is not useful

        What are you expecting me to do? Reformat my MAC hard drive?

        If I do that, then other stuff (that works now) will probably start breaking because they are expecting case sensitive file systems

        This is a must as Apples conitnues to rollout new Laptops and Desktops with APFS installed on them as default! Thanks!
