On windows, if i create a shortcut to a directory, the FSB recognizes it as a directory, but if I try to go into it, i see nothing.
It would be nice if windows shortcuts worked like symlinks in *nix.
It seems that in Windows 7, with Java 1.6, the File System Browser can use windows directory .lnk shortcuts.
This did not work in Windows XP, I think this is new to Windows 7. which also introduces symbolic links to the OS!
oops. ignore previous comment. I thought it works in win7 but I tried again now and but it appears not.
