Correction. ;)

my LC server is aware of the full filesystem here on Mac OS x.

Setting the folder to "/" for example  and doing a "put the folders" lists all folders of the root folder of my harddisk.
I have access to all volumes. Did a short test right now and was even able to write a file on an other volume from a lc script
opened in the browser.

I am using LC server with from, but i could not imagine why this should not be possible also
with XAMPP or "standard" installation.
