Default Mysterious Problem With Folders...

Hello, recently I have decided to keep backups of my website data. But when I create a new folder, and add a full stop at the end, like this: sebastian sk. : it creates two folders, one without the full stop at the end, and one with it. And then a second later it deletes the folder with the full stop at the end. I am wondering why this happens.

I did some testing. Windows Explorer is apparently severely confused by directory names ending in full stops, and tries to prevent you from creating them. I can't really say what the root cause of this is but I would recommend not attempting to end directory names with full stops.
