    "FILE OR FOLDER DOES NOT EXIST"

    I have seen several different people with this problem, so I am not the only
    one.

    I am running Windows Vista Ultimate, and everything was working fine, until
    one day I went to reorganize my music, and when I tried creating a new
    folder, it wouldn't let me rename it. "File or folder does not exist" pops
    up. This is quite frustrating, I have tried everyone's suggestions. They all
    fail. If anyone has found a way to fix this annoyance, that would be
    fantastic.

    p.s. I miss XP

    Where were you trying to create this folder?
    You can't create a folder in, or use the "My Music", "My documents", etc, as
    these aren't really folders.

    Use the Music folder under your login account, or under the Public account
    (if you want to share the music)

    The so-called fix did not work for me either. Does anyone have a solution now?

    I just ended up getting a new computer anyways. I really hope everyone can
    figure out why Vista is being so lame. nothing seemed to fix it.

    Probably just a case of insufficient permissions, or virtual store.
