Unable to Create a Folder named CON

Try to create a folder name “CON” or “con”… and see what is happening if your PC platform are windows.
Feeling curious, I start googling for explaination...and found that there are a lot of words unable to create such as:

CON, PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, and LPT9.
The reason is those name are reserved for ‘DOS’ device names…
There also some tips and trick to create this kind of folder, just open a MS-DOS
to create type -> md c:\con\
to delete type -> rd c:\con\

If the folder already exist, you will have problem in renaming it, once i rename it, it shows “error renaming file or folder”

I found that when we create any picture such as jpeg or bmp file with CON as the file name, it also shows error, below are the error when i try to save the jpg file as CON.

Well, this is just some tips and trick to create the folder name CON and also PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, and LPT9.
