Directories can no longer be renamed via Python if they are not empty.

Steps to Reproduce
  • Create a folder in the content browser named "From"
  • Create a blueprint actor asset in the "From" folder
  • Execute the following Python command:
    • unreal.get_editor_subsystem(unreal.EditorAssetSubsystem).rename_directory(“/Game/From” , “/Game/To”)
  • Note the error message, and folder that is not renamed
