[security] Shared Folders >> Add Share >> Other defaults to system32 directory!

Description

I just noticed this and it seems like a horrible security flaw. See attached screenshots. When you specify sharing of a folder, the tree view dialog that pops up defaults to system32. You should default to something more benign.

  • Status changed from new to closed

You are mistaken. It remembers previous directories and doesn't default to system32.
