Defaulting to Windows directory…


today when Christian ran a simple batch-file on a fileshare:



“\\the-watch\outgoing”
CMD.EXE was started with the above-mentioned path as the current directory.
UNC-paths are not supported.
The Windows directory is used as the current directory instead.


C:\WINDOWS>pause
Press any key to continue…”


Now imagine what would happen if the “pause” was a “del *.*“…well it was a “del *.*” when Christian first discovered the fantastic effect it had on his freshly installed Windows…
