    Generally when moving a file, etc. and another one is encountered with the same name, it won't be able to move it to the new location and it will just remain in it's original location. Have you looked in the original location?

    Ofc i did. And the folder wasn't duplicate. I was told on apple support forum that the problem is with Paragon NTFS for MAC (since all these errors do happen on my NTFS drive). Let's hope they can help me. Otherwise i gonna try NTFs-3g
