Reserved words in SharePoint url

Avoid using these words in any SharePoint url (file name, folder name, site name etc.):

CON, PRN, AUX, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, LPT9

You can create folder named “CON”, but when you go to folder url, you get 404 error.

Thanks to the following articles:
