That's all perfectly normal. What problem are you having?
In the previous installation, I could browse the file structure (including the root directory) from my personal user account by clicking on the "My Computer" Icon then the "Storage Media" Icon. I could then access a particular file by using the "Open As Root" action. That doesn't seem possible from this installation. In fact, even when I log in as the Root user, I can not access the root directory from the "My Computer/Storage Media" Icons. I can only access it from the "Home" Icon. Is this normal in the newest version of PCLOS or do I have something set wrong?
