Renaming external_files folder name

In the published folder, I see a folder named external_files which consists of all resources, excel and PDF files. Is it possible to rename this folder to external or resources?

When I upload the course on the SharePoint environment, it automatically changes the external_files  file name to external_files_ i.e. adds underscore at the end. This behavior is due to the SPS internal verification code logic which will treat the folder name which contains "_files" as particular reserved word.

The only solution is to rename this particular folder name to something else without _files on it.

Is it possible to rename this folder to external or resources?
