Thunder Bay 12 Tb Enclosure - RAID 5

I have a Thunder Bay 12 Tb Thunderbolt 3 Enclosure formatted as HFS+ and in a RAID 5 Configuration.

 

I bought this mostly because my iMac Pro only has a 1Tb Drive so I need to move files off my Mac to the ThunderBay as I run out of disk space.  Whenever I try to copy an entire folder I get the error:

 

"You can't copy "Icon?" because it has the same name as another item on the destination volume, and that volume doesn't distinguish between upper- and lowercase letters in filenames."

2021 12 22 12 22 36

If I copy each file individually from the source folder to the destination folder, that all works.  It's only when I try to copy an entire folder or a group of folders that I get this error.  It copies some of the files, but not all of them, so it's a pain to go back and figure out which files copied and which did not.

Is there another format I should be using for the Array?  Also I assume this means I'll need to pull everything off the Thunder Bay Enclosure, reformat it, and then move everything back?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

Is your source volume case sensitive? (like a Time Machine volume?)

 

If so, backup/erase your Thunderbay with Disk Utility, as Case Sensitive. that could be the issue.

 

You can also try using Carbon Copy Cloner and see if that works. it has a great free trial period.

@softraid-support My source volume is just my Macintosh HD that shipped with my Mac.  I'm not using Time Machine.  I use a 3rd party service to backup my Mac.

How would I check to see if my Source HD is Case Sensitive?

Thanks!

I looked in Disk Utility and it says my Macintosh HD is not case sensitive.

Also Thunder Bay shows as Not Case Sensitive.

OK I figured it out!!! 
 
The files I was trying to move to the Thunder Bay drive were from Google Drive.  The folders I was trying to move were SHARED folders and as such Google Drive modified the icon of the folder to be a folder with a little person icon.  That created the icon? file in each of those folders.  When I turned off sharing for each of those folders, the icon? file was deleted, the folder icon reverted back to a normal folder icon and subsequently I could copy the files without issue.  What a pain in the butt.  Anyway, thank you for all your help!
