hi guys, I have this code which I get from the link below.


Need your help, why the current directory is the directory of the root server.

I want the code to default the directory to:
c:\ so I can specify any folder on c drive

How do I change this code below to specify the directory to c:\ ?

Thanks in advance for any help.

to specify a path folder need to change this line:

$directory = explode("\", $path);


$directory = explode("Directory_Separator", $path);
