Issue:
When renaming a folder you have created in Windows Explorer view for a Sharepoint library, you are presented with the following error.
 
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.
