Windows Directory Bug

Hi Guys,

I’d like to share a weird story with you.

Today, I found this interesting bug/issue in Windows OS. earlier I tested on Windows 8.1(x64), Windows 7(x64) and Windows Sever 2008 R2 (x64). I think they are present in all versions of its windows OS.

However Im not certain why this issue occured but I think it minght be related with NTFS.

Due to this issue the created folders are unable to be deleted.

mkdir “test /. /test”

windows_1

windows_2

windows_3

windows_4

if you created a file in folder, same file gets created in both folder also if any one of the folder is deleted, remaing file get corrupted.

windows_5

windows_6

  1. Can be deleted by doing the following in Command prompt.

    RD /S /Q “C:\Users\Nicholas\test \”

    where the folder created was test. :)
