Folder renamed from PC appears different on a Mac

Folder renamed from PC appears different on a Mac

New member | Level 2

Folders were renamed by the person who originally set up the folders.

These folders are shared with several people.

2 of us are using Macs and our folders' names have not changed. Everyone else is on Window and their folders have been changed successfully. Is this a glitch with the Mac OS?

When a shared folder is renamed, it's not renamed for any other member, and any new members invited to the folder will see it as the original folder name. This is by design.
