I get below error while saving or renaming folders
Tried to modify registry setting as per below steps for some forum suggestions but didnt help
Re: unable to rename network folders with windows Vista

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
here is the solution you have all been looking for.
Your are correct. It seems to be an issue with the OEM version of Vista
and how the new Search tool works

ISSUE: Unable to Rename/Move Files/Folders in Network Drive
Symptoms: the error "The "\\servername\sharedfolder" does not exist.
The file may have been moved or deleted. Do you want to create it?"
comes up if a user copies a file from the Share, edits the file and then
tries to copy it back. You are however able to successfully save the
file locally.
A second issue was not being able to rename folders/files on the Share.
Again locally is fine just over the network is an issue.
Cause : Possibly the way the OEM vender packaged the OS.
Resolution : Create the parameters key in the following location :
HKLM/system/currentcontrolset/services/csc/parameters

Then within the parameters key, create a DWORD Value named
FormatDatabase with a value of 1 (hex) then reboot the machine.

I suspect that you have issues with your hardware. If possible try to use another network card or even this may sound weird to you, you may have problems with your memory modules or disk cables in your machine.

My friend had a similar problem with creating new folders locally. The problem was in one of the memory modules in the machine.
