For anyone finding this thread later, you need to modify fscrawler’s default mapping file “_settings.json”.

Add this to the analysis section:

      "normalizer": {
        "useLowercase": {
            "type": "custom",
            "filter": [ "lowercase" ]

And this to “filename” under mappings:

"normalizer": “useLowercase"

Now searches by name are case-insensitive. You have to destroy the index and start over though.
