Omega2+ treats files as dirs on USB drive. Why?
I have a USB flash with files with russian names. This is from windows:
24.04.2020 14:22 39 576 966 женщина.bmp 24.10.2020 19:56 6 912 054 winpe.bmp 22.01.2021 19:30 3 448 960 Vis - Песня_про_нечисть.mp3 28.01.2021 15:03 165 623 tela_tst.psd 07.03.2020 19:03 205 406 pacan_mini_layers.psd 17.11.2020 12:53 231 080 angelsmal.bmp 13.06.2021 09:16 <DIR> В_Цой 13.06.2021 09:16 <DIR> Dir1 13.06.2021 09:16 <DIR> asdf
Note that женщина.bmp is file.
Same USB flash in omega2:
root@Omega-3079:~# ls -l /mnt/sda1 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 13 09:16 Dir1 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3448960 Jan 22 19:30 Vis - Песня_про_нечисть.mp3 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 231080 Nov 17 2020 angelsmal.bmp drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 13 09:16 asdf -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 205406 Mar 7 2020 pacan_mini_layers.psd -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 165623 Jan 28 15:03 tela_tst.psd -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 6912054 Oct 24 2020 winpe.bmp drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 13 09:16 В_Цой drwxr-xr-x 0 root root 39576966 Apr 24 2020 женщина.bmp root@Omega-3079:~# cd /mnt/sda1/женщина.bmp root@Omega-3079:/mnt/sda1/женщина.bmp# root@Omega-3079:/mnt/sda1/женщина.bmp# ls -l root@Omega-3079:/mnt/sda1/женщина.bmp# root@Omega-3079:~# cat /mnt/sda1/женщина.bmp cat: read error: Is a directory
As you can see 'женщина.bmp' - directory, not a file!
Why? How to avoid this?
Some experiments show that this bug present only on FAT32 disks.
On exFAT and NTFS all good - женщина.bmp -- file, not a directory.
Mounting USB drive with shortname=mixed option fixes this bug
/bin/mount -o codepage=1251,iocharset=utf8,shortname=mixed /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
@Pavel-Negrobov If you have the time it might be good to log a defect on openwrt.org, if nothing else it would help others using Russian.
@crispyoz I will do this later when I will finish my python soft, I need to check chdir to russian named dirs and read files.

I have two external drives and I'm hoping to make finding what I have and where, by topic, much easier than "plug in and hope I'm right". Is there an easy way to do this? I'd love to scrape the file and folder list of a drive and then I suppose tag folders or subfolders by relevant subject and possibly even by importance (obviously that I'd determine) and be able to see what is where on my computer without needing to physically access a drive to be sure. I'm not sure if this is at all possible, though.
