Get rid of Linux specific folder information

Connections for Windows uses an inconsistent mix of both Windows and Linux folder information when it comes to slashes and backslashes which makes it difficult for admins to differentiate when to use a slash and when to use a backslash instead.


Below are examples I have seen in our own Windows instance of Connections:

  • D:\folder\folder\folder
  • D:/folder/folder/folder
  • D:\folder/folder\folder
  • D:/folder\\folder/folder

It would make the life of admins easier, if only backslashes or only slashes would be used on Windows instances.

Preferably backslashes of course...

    Only slashes would be the best because they're both compatible with Linux and even Windows
