Try to make the folder named "CON","AUX" or "NUL"....Not created !!Not only this, but also some folder names like PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, LPT9 and more are not created.
Why we are not able to Create Folder "CON"..Reason behind this :
We can not create folder "CON","AUX" or "NUL" because these are reserved keywords used by DOS. so if u r allowed to create such folders, there will be an ambiguity in where to write data when the data is supposed to go to the specified devices. In other words, if I want to print something, internally what windows does is -- it will write the data to the folder prn (virtually u can call it a folder, I mean prn, con, etc are virtual folders in device level). So if we are able to create con folder, windows will get confused where to write the data, to virtual con folder or real one.That's why these folders are restricted by DOS for creation.
