Default Directory rename will rename the other one

1- I have got folder called Favorite, on partition D (D:\Foverite) , and I have another folder called Archive on partition D as well (D:\Archive).

2- Inside the Archive folder I have got another folder called Favorite (D:\Archive\Favorite).

3- When I try to rename (D:\Archive\Favorite) to (D:\Archive\LaptopFavorite), the one which is on (D:\Foverite) changes to LaptopFoverite as well (from D:\Favorite to (D:\LaptopFavorite

Where is the problem ?

OS XP Professional with SP2

how do you try to rename the folder?

open my computer or windows explorer, right click the folder you wish to rename, click rename, type in the name you wish to rename the folder to, and press enter
