If you open the library with the Open with Explorer in the web interface for the Sharepoint Library, you are able to successfully rename a folder. 
 
Cause:
The Network Location was created with HTTP:// and not HTTPS://.
 
Resolution:
Add a new Network Location this time using HTTPS:// instead of HTTP://.  You should now be able to rename folders within Windows Explorer in the Network Location.
