Hi Yücel,

I'm a Google Drive user for almost 8 years (since it was Google Docs)... i decided to leave drive, today 🙂

The reason is... Google Drive cannot protect my data and i lost lots of important files... and yes, this is a big problem but Google Drive can learn how to solve this.

On the other side; Dropbox thinks that converting uppercase "İ" to lowercase is a big problem...

And... my friend, the biggest problem here is this!

Google Drive, OneDrive, Windows, Macintosh, Unix, Linux all the operating systems that I know of and all the sync applications out there, all of them handle Turkish characters without ANY problem. And all of them are case in-sensitive.

"...it uses the lowercase version of the..."

If dropbox didn't try to convert to lower case when writing, there would be no issue. Why convert to lower case in the first place? Just copy the file/directory as is.

Its a big problem that dropbox does not sync the files which starts with "İ". I have seen a reply above who says dropbox sync files with lowercase and there is no lowercase letter of "İ". Lowercase letter of "İ" is "i".

Turkish is a widely used language in the world.  I hope one day Dropbox supports the Turkish Language.

Windows and many widely used Cloud softwares support the Turkish Characters without any issues.

Thank you

@Erkan G. Rename the folder in the web browser to "delete". Wait for 3-5 sec. Then delete the folder in the web browser. Works for me. Folder name could be anything but i İ ı I
