Thanks for the definitive reply.
If the user tries to create a directory (or file) with the vetoed name
then they get an error from Windows. The folder looks like it has a
name of 'New Folder' initially but this disappears when the view is
So in other words - as it stops the user from being able to create a
folder/file with that name it kinda fails safe.
Thanks - and well done for the column in Linux Format - always a good read.
