Step one: Create new folder
Two: Rename folder
Three: copy contents into renamed folder
Four: Accidentally select "undo new" in rmenu
Result: Windows will delete the renamed folder and all contents.
Step five: select "redo new" results in an empty folder named "New folder" with original contents lost, and unrecoverable.
Undo option should have been "undo rename" not "undo new", nor should windows 11 "undo" a renamed folder with contents.
