How Microsoft missed this!Amr Saafan
Nobody can create a folder anywhere named as “con” , “PRN” , “LPT1” , “LPT2” , “LPT3” , “COM1” ,”aux” , “COM2” or “NUL” on any Windows Operating System
This is something pretty cool…and unbelievable… At Microsoft the whole Team, including Bill Gates, couldn’t answer why this happened! It is a standard device name in DOS. You cannot use these too
In addition, the following file names are pre-assigned to certain devices.
Console (screen display for output and keyboard for input)
Printer. This is usually LPT1.
The first parallel printer/port. The printer device may be used only as an output device.
The second parallel printer/port (for output only).
The third parallel printer/port (for output only).
COM1: or AUX:
The first asynchronous communications adapter port.
The second asynchronous communications adapter port.
A nonexistent device to avoid the generation of output from programs.
Try it out yourself…
