Appending _ to foldername ending in "_files" in SharePoint


You see the behavior in SharePoint that if you create a folder called
"my_files" You get a folder called "my_files_". Why the appended
underscore?

The answer:

This behavior is due to the SPS internal verification code logic which
will treat the folder name which contains "_files" as particular reserved
word. SharePoint has a logic to prevent you from using some of these reserved words as folder names (e.g. _file, _files, .files).
