In windows there are reserved words like con, aux, lpt1 to lpt9. These are the words that you can’t use to create a folder in Windows.

Step 2: Once you open the command prompt go to drive or folder where you want to create this special type of folder. (Eg: You can go to root of the drive by typing D: and pressing Enter for D drive or C: and pressing Enter for C drive).
Step 3: Type “md con\” (without inverted comma) to create a directory named “con” in the location you are currently now. (This directory named “con” can now neither be deleted nor be renamed from the Windows, if you try to do show it will display error message. You can also use any other name instead of “con” to create folder with different names like “aux” or “lpt1″ to “lpt9″).
Step 4: Now you can navigate to the location where you created that folder to see and try to delete or rename it, where you will get an error message from the Windows.

As it is not possible to delete this folder manually from the Windows, you have to follow different procedure to delete it. Follow to the steps mentioned below to delete this special folder:
