Interesting for windows user

You can not create folders names 'Aux', 'Con' and 'Nul'. I found this very interesting so I am sharing it with you. This is a bug in windows... Though, this is not related to SEO... interesting to know. Isn't it???

I don't think it's a bug, aren't they specially reserved ports/devices/terminals from the DOS days?

Far from a bug. Nul, I believe, is used in programming and specifies an empty variable. I'm sure the other have their reasons for not being able to be folder names as well.

Hmmm me coming from a Microsoft.NET Programming background the Nul is really Null in the coding. Hmmm Con I would think be something like SqlClient for database opertations on a SQL Server.

But anyways good spot. Even the Microsoft God (me) did not even notice that hehe.

Its very strange..
probably because this directories aux, con and nul are reserved names for microsoft ?or because they use that for same variables?
