Running under Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 x64.
When I try to create a folder with a certain name (for reference, let's assume it's
X:\MyFolder, I'm getting this:
The name I am using does not show as a folder in Explorer, Total Commander or Far.
The name consists of Latin characters and an underscore, <20 characters long, being created under a drive's root (so no long names issue).
Any other folder name works fine.
I tried restarting - it did not help.
I tried a check disk - it did not find any errors.
What could be preventing me from creating a folder with this name?
Is there any other cleanup I can do on my file system, to get rid of this ghost somehow?
For those wondering, this is not a random name, it was destination path for
Copy-Item command in Powershell, it failed to create this folder for some reason, now it keeps haunting me. :) The issue has been happening ever since, and only for this specific folder name, at this specific path.
