I unpacked a zip archive which resulted in a couple of file naming problems. Specifically, there were spaces at the beginning of the file name. For example, the final folder listing looked like this:
part4
part5
part1
part2
part3

Easy enough, just rename to take out the leading space. Windows 7 wouldn't do it. It said that the new name was the same as the old name.

I had to change the space to some other character. I could then remove the first character.

Now the folding list is as expected:
part1
part2
and so on.
