Hi everyone, I was born at the beginning of the last century and I'm sure I remember learning that in the first year of high school

CON is not the only one... but it's one of a list of reserved names (not allowed to be used as a file/folder name.

others are PRN, AUX, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, and LPT9

Yes it is the same with the other names mentioned because they are on the reserved list. So if yiou have a problem making a folder name then it will be because of this.
