That may actually be an OS limitation. Locally, Index, index and INDEX are all the same file. Your local OS doesn't care about the case structure. I've found, many times in the past, while trying to rename "something" to "Something" my OS would simply forget about the change in case structure and revert to the original. If that's what's going on, I just change the file name, at the OS level, from "Index.html" to "index2.html", commit the change, then change it back to just "index.html". Since...

Thank you so much for your quick and helpful response! I actually found that the advice from Jon Fritz II was what was needed to work in the OS file manager. So glad to have it resolved!

in complement of what said @BenPleysier  that is a nice workaround, you can also try to rebuild the cache... hit F5 on the file panel, or on the right up corner of the same file panel, using the drop down menu > rebuild cache... see what's going on.

Thank you for the advice Birnou, much appreciated! I have noted that rebuilding the cache can be a good workaround as well yet was able to do the renaming this time with the advice from Jon Fritz II.
