    STEP1: goto command prompt

    STEP2: type in prompt e:\> "mkdir \\.\e:\con"

    STEP3: verify by typing "dir \\.\e:\con"

    STEP4: delete the file or folder "rmdir \\.\e:\con"

    Brother windows will not allow u to create a folder named "Con"
    Something internal to windows

    "CON" and a number of other character strings are in fact reserved names that go back to the days of DOS and cannot be used to name folders or files. Other reserved names are:
    PRN
    AUX
    NUL
    LPT1
    COM1
    Potential drive letter - A: to Z:
    A number of others
