Hi Team,
Could you please confirm, Get-AzDatalakeGen2ChildItem function the path (parameter) is case sensitive or not , we are using this function in PowerShell, to get the files and directory in the Azure storage account.

Eg: the folders and sub folders in storage account is not in proper format (there is upper case and lower case), we are trying to lower case the path, when we are doing it, we are getting an error as path not found. we want to know the path is case sensitive or not, do we need to pass the path as what was the path present in storage account?

Get-AzDatalakeGen2ChildItem - storage account -context - filesystem -path

we are using the above syntax, please let me know for any.
