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
It's incredibly frustrating that in 2020 case-sensitive file systems are unsupported. It shouldn't matter to OneDrive what kind of filesystem it's on, and if it cannot support files the names of which only differ in letter-case, that is the responsibility of the sync agent, not the host filesystem.

Please support case sensitive format on mac. Google drive works fine. I am trying not to switch.

There is a work around on this by using Disk Utility to create a second volume for OneDrive, but that is not ideal in my opinion. I am hoping that enough people will request the feature of using the app on case-sensitive volumes that Microsoft will make it happen!
Another user that definitely wants support for APFS Case sensitive file systems!
how many years you cant do it now ? 3? more? ohh, i understand, it is too difficult for Microsoft?

I found the solution with APFS case sensitive: Go to disk utility . Disk Utility menu-> EDIT->Add APFS volume. Select the APFS as format not the APFS case sensitive. This will create a second volume without deleting the current volume. Internally it creates a MOUNT. Then setup onedrive in the new volume....
this is ridiculous. Please support case sensitive format on mac

Really?! How can Microsoft not comprehend case sensitive file systems? They'll probably tell us we can only use file names of 8 characters soon.
Microsoft, open your eyes and see that there is a world outside your creaking and decrepit ecosystem and get with the times.
I need this for my business and currently you're holding my files ******* simply because I use a Mac.
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.

It is unbelivable that we have this kind of problem.

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

Onedrive is impossible to be used like this...at least let us know you cant fix it so we can switch to other drives
This is a must as Apples conitnues to rollout new Laptops and Desktops with APFS installed on them as default! Thanks!
Microsoft ? Contact?
