Not without more information, but my first
guess is that there could be some invisible
characters in that "RESPALDOS".

> [root@serv home]# ls

man ls

ls -bl

cd *E*


> [root@serv home]# cd RESPALDOS/

Why add the slash ("/")?

Perhaps the shell did that with filename completion? (A slash shouldn't hurt and you can add as many as you want. :-)

I'm with Steven - I think you've got junk characters in your directory name.

try this:

mv ./*RESP* ./junk
mv ./junk ./RESPALDOS

If it doesn't work, try another part of the substring, like "PALD"

mv ./*PALD* ./junk
mv ./junk ./RESPALDOS

or another example:

mv ./*SPA* ./junk
mv ./junk ./RESPALDOS

Also, just as a hint, don't create user directories all in caps; it's just bad form. And... check your /etc/password file, as you may have junk in there too, if you used a tool of most any sort that created the user and the user's home directory, and maybe parts of their default profiles at the same time.

_I_ never said "junk".

Like, say. "*E*"?

Define "bad form". (Or "good form".)
