Source / Layout editor pulls in whole path instead of just the file

Recommended Posts

In "Create image file from files/folders" mode, when I select a file or folder in the "Source" section, I would expect it to go to the root of the image.

e.g. I've extracted an iso to some folder, made some changes and now I want to write it out again.

 

Instead, the file/folder gets created in the resulting image with its' full path to the drive root.

e.g. D:\A\B\test.txt, when loaded into the source will produce \A\B\test.txt in the image.

 

I might even understand this in the simple view, but the same thing happen in the layout editor.

 

I drag a file into the root of the image from somewhere and the entire path gets created (see screenshots).

I can then drag the files back to the root and remove the path folders but I feel that this should not work like this.

 

EDIT: ImgBurn 2.5.8.0 on Windows 7 Ultimate.

You've probably got 'Preserve Full Pathnames' enabled. Turn it back off.

 

It's off by default so it's something you've done - or another app has done it for you when calling up ImgBurn (unlikely).
