    Hi,

    If I open the info window, there is a line that says Features: none. What is
    that? Are those features something you set when formatting the device only or
    can those be set at any time?

    Also, if I hover the mouse over "none", a help bubble appears and lists the current features. But those should be none, right?

    And one feature says case sensitive, but my device is not case sensitive AFAICT.

    Is this a bug?

    The possible features are explained in the popup.

    "Large files" (>2GB support) is typically filesystem dependant. Even then it might be limited to about 4GB for some file systems. For more details on actual limits see MorphOS Library - Filesystems

    Case sensitivity: This is something you can choose for SFS filesystem at format time. It should not be used lightly though as it can lead to trouble with software that might assume case insensitivity.

    Not as such. It is just a confusing way to present the possible values.

    Thank you for the explanation. It is clear now.
