    problem with Wind10 version 1809 folder naming


    I upgraded to Windows 10 v1809 and my folder names that use special characters have changed.
    For example, if a folder was named "♫MyMusic" the ♫ character has been replaced by a small rectangle.
    (FYI, the ♫ character is produced by ALT+14).

    I have no problem producing ♫ in a WORD document but as of the v1809 upgrade it appears as if folders cannot use these special characters.

    Thanks in advance to all those who reply.

  2. Moved a folder from another drive and rename and it still shows as the old folder name in certain places

    Hi Nick,

    I suggest you to try the steps provided below and check the behavior.

    • Create a new folder name it as 'My Videos'.
    • Now copy/cut and paste the contents which are in the folder "Videos", and delete the folder "Videos".
    • Now check the behavior.
    Please keep us updated with the status of the folder, to assist you further.

    Regards,

    Unable to delete a folder - Invalid folder name


    Suggestion:
    1. Run chkdsk x: /r to make sure that there's no HD corruption.
      x: is the drive containing the folder you want to delete.
    2. Try to delete the folder again. If still does not work, go to step 3.
    3. Download: Download - Linux Mint and create a bootable USB using: Rufus - Create bootable USB
    4. Boot up with Linux Mint and try to delete the folder again.
      NOTE: Unlike WinPE. Linux does not have any Windows permission imposed to it so it is easier to delete.

  4. problem with Wind10 version 1809 folder naming

    Getting folder names and not location in VB .Net

    Hey guys,
    I'm getting a problem with my line of code and can't seem to find a workaround that works (all I can find is VB 6)

    Code: CheckedListBox1.Items.AddRange(IO.Directory.GetDirectories("my directory here"))[/quote] This deposits all folders locations into a list box but I only need the actual folder name
    e.g:

    Deposits: C:\Users\Onafets
    But all I want is "Onafets"

    Is there any way to do this?

    cheers
