Our friend MUKIL mention that CON name folder cant create in Windows OS.
Not only CON but also we cant create a folder with many words like PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL , COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5,COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, and LPT9 .
This are reserved keywords used by DOS.
These folders are already existing folders so when you try to create these folders then windows gets confused because of ambiguity.
Note: Am using Local disk F.
Open CMD and type the following:
1. To Create CON Folder:
2. To Create PRN Folder:
3. To Create LPT1 Folder:
Reason behind this creating concept is
We used Universal Naming Convention (UNC) Path concept
