the point is that if I log in and there is no folder Members/ritsch, the
system will make one, so there are two of them, but the data is in the
renamed one.

Please never rename system immanent names like Members, since the are
used in a lot of scripts and page templates. You can change the
title. So using upper or lowercase convention on these is not whats we can

I have done it, just deleted the old New one (hopefully nobody did to
much data in the new one in between.

But, please before renaming anything where you are not owner (or
