  • Folder name con

    Hi Guys,

    I was quiet interested with the fact that i cant create a folder named con in windows operating system. I tried it in 2000 server and XP. Dont know about Vista. Just kind of a curiosity post. Does anyone know about it, and does it has any fix? Probably this topic should be in coffee lounge i believe.

    I believe it's a holdout from the DOS days as CON is a reserved word for the console, as in "copy con".
