    Neverending Folders

    Bit of a strange one here. Got a memory stick (Kingston 16GB)
    I created some folders for putting drivers in for a laptop im building.
    Structure is like this

    E:\Drivers\E8010D\

    then folders within the E8010D:

    Audio
    Chipset
    LAN
    Wireless
    Modem.

    But Windows has decided to make the same structure within each folder, going on in an infinate loop. lol

    Here is a screenshot from @Batman linux workstation

    Windows 3.1 had this problem.. if you had a special foldername.
    It was a bug then, but it got fixed for WIndows 95.

    If you were running command and created a folder by typing
    MD [ALT+255]

    that is press and hold ALT and then type 255, it put in a special ASCII character, that would completely confuse Windows.
