ok, I did an erase and full backup option in SuperDuper and the resulting partition is still case sensitive. Says it's "Mac OS Extended (Case-sensitive, Journaled)."

I'm assuming at this point I need to reformat that partition in some way. I upgraded to High Sierra a few weeks ago, under format that just says "APFS". I'm assuming that maybe the fact that the source is APFS has something to do with this.

So, direction on where to go from here? I copied my wife's Documents and Desktop folders from her old machine to a Misc partition on this drive. Once I setup her laptop and move those folders back, I can reformat and repartition the entire external drive as APFS, if that's possible.

And if so, best app to do that with? Can Disk Utility do it?
