    Having slashes in folder names is invalid on a Windows machine. You cannot have them. Sorry, but you are going to have to rename your folder.

    The Slashes (/ or \) are used to seperate folders, (File '\' & Web '/') With The web been intergrated into windows, windows identifies both as pretty much the same .. when passing any slash via a path, the OS automaticaly uses it as a sub folder devider..

    As PJ has already said.. you will have to rename the folder..
