change book file name from capital letters to proper case

I added some epub to Calibre whose titles were written into capital letters such as MY OWN BOOK.

Then I went into metadata edit and converted them to lower case.

But then I noticed the file name into the directory structure of the library is still writter in capitals.

I know I better do not edit files and directories into the library, so I wonder how could I convert those file names to title case?

Thank you.

add a 2 at the end of the title and the end of the author, then remove the 2.

I assume that you are running on Windows?

The behaviour you are seeing is an idiosyncrasy of Windows where it ignores requests from a program to rename a file where the only change is to the case. That is why you need to use the workaround that Kovid mentioned of renaming to another name and then back again.

Nice to read from you Kovid. Calibre is great sofware, really.

Well, it works.

Some workaround ;-)

Thank you.

Nope, I am on Mountain Lion. Still, even after manually renaming the title to lower case the file name did not get changed. It did only after the workaround Kovid told me, now I do not know why.

Thanks again.

Interesting - I thought Mountain Lion defaulted to treating case as significant in filenames. I guess I could be wrong, and it might even vary depending on the filing system format (e.g. AFP v NTFS v FAT)

It should, you should be right, but I cannot say more than that. If you would like me to make some tries, I am willing to. Thank you.

Can you check on what type of filesystem the drive with the Library folder is?

HFS+ the default filesystem in OSX is not case sensitive. You can make it case sensitive if you want, but by default it is not.

It reads Mac OS Extended, I guess it's HFS+, the default one.

Still, I do not get what the filesystem has to do with the matter. If calibre tells to rename the file, it should be renamed according to calibre instruction and with the exact string that calibre tells it to use, regardless of the case sensitive nature or not of the file system. Or else?

Anyway, just out of curiosity, for I solved my issue with the practical workaround.

Thank again.

When a filename is CasE iNsEnSitiVe
There is NO change (detected) when just the case changes. The Add/Remove a Letter (save) Remove/Add that letter trick forces the name to be different , so the FS writes it out.

Got it, Thank you. So it's not an issue one could solve on calibre's side, unless coding the workaround (adding some new char and then removing). Thanjs again.
