If you are not running FoxWeb as a service, then FoxWeb runs under the userid that you used to log into Windows. If, on the other hand, you run FoxWeb as a service, it will run under the user specified in the service properties (Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Services, locate FoxWeb and open its properties). By default the FoxWeb service runs under the system account, which has full rights on the server, but no rights on remote network shares. If you want to access remote network shares, you should use a user account that has rights to these shares. For details please refer to the Running as a System Service section of the Operating the FoxWeb Server topic in the FoxWeb documentation.

Any worry about intrusion into my data folder?

How should I resolve this? cDataPath is a dynamically changing value. I cannot use:
