Default You can't create a folder with this name!!!!

In Windows try and make a folder called "CON" without the quotes. It will not work. At Microsoft the whole Team, including Bill Gates, couldn't answer why this happened!

Try it

This is because "con" is a system name. Theirs a few other names you cant use for folders or files too
