I imagine that Wine mounting Z:\ as / off the bat is kind of a security hazard, guessing you could probably just make a simple batch file that goes to Z:\mnt and tries to delete every folder starting with all sub-directories in sda1, sda2, home, etc.

Well I have no sympathy for anyone deliberately running known nasties even under simulated environments.
Whether you like it or not there is ALWAYS a path between virtual machines and the real one it is running under - as there HAS to be to make resources available. _________________ "Just think of it as leaving early to avoid the rush" - T Pratchett
WineHQ recommend never to run wine as root. Of course that's inconvenient in Puppy land but it may be worth doing for frequent wine users. In Fatdog64 I run wine as user spot by default, and only allow running it as root for specific apps that I believe don't to pose a security risk. _________________ Fatdog64-721|+Packages|Kodi|Findnrun|+forum|gtkmenuplus
