Windows 7: Folder rename not changing object name

Folder rename not changing object name

I am copying some old My Documents directories that I backed up from a couple of previous installations.

I copy the first My Documents directory to a backup directory and then I rename it to something else eg "My documents 1", then try to copy the second My documents directory into the backup directory, but it gives me the message:

This destination already contains a folder named "My documents 1".

Do you still want to merge this folder
My documents 1
with this one?
My documents.

I checked the properties->security/advanced->effective permissions
The object name still retains the original name of the directory, can someone assist me in why this is happening, so that I may rename it correctly please.

Thanks in advance.

Before getting too involved I'd try naming it to something without the "My Documents" being any part of the name. Just see what happens.

Tried that, still thinks it's the same object name.

This is all I've found so far that seems like it may be related.

I solved the issue, it was my desktop.ini file.
