We still have SharePoint 2007. I have users who have created/are creating folders with names starting with a plus sign (+). I can't see the folder when I'm accessing the SharePoint document library through the browser, but I can see the folder when using Windows Explorer. When I try to open the folder I get an error message saying:
[Folder Path] refers to a location that is not available.
When I try to rename the folder I get an error message saying:
Could not find this item. This is no longer located in [Parent Folder Path]. Verify the items location and try again.
Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to rename the folder so the user can access the files located within?
