Dos Problems!!

Post by WatchFul EyE on Thu Jan 17, 2008 6:56 pm

Question:
Hi. All friends.
Please any one Help me to know WHY other Words are not allowed in Filename or Extensios. I try to create files and Folder with so names but it didnt work.
These files names are
CON, COM1, COM2, COM3, LPT1, LPT2, PRN, NUL...?
Please friends help me to know why these Files cant be Formed?


Answer:
DON'T WORRY BRO I M NOW HERE ....

This is prevented as XP terms these folders as SYSTEM Folder Names reserved only for the Operating System..
But our curious brains dont stop pondering over such pessy stuff!

I searched around the net & found this trick to create system folders on XP through command prompt!

Try this:
CREATION
Syntax:md \\.\\$path
Example:prompt>md \\.\\C:\con
Explanation: This would create a folder named "con" on your "C Drive"

Similarly to delete such folder:
DELETION
Syntax:rd/s \\.\\$path
Example:prompt>rd/s \\.\\C:\con
Explanation: This would remove the folder named "con"!
Note: rd(Remove Directory) command is used with "/s" switch as otherwise it would give error that "folder is not empty"!

On another hand...if you ever wondered how to create a folder with no name...then try this:
Create a New Folder from Windows Explorer
Select rename & type: "ALT+255"(Use Numpad)..thats it!
ALT+255 stands for blank character in ASCII...so it still accepts your folder name!
