phoning home

Hi, I'm just trying path finder out and the features look very useful. Maybe a paranoid query, but I'm noticing that it periodically accesses libraries in the NetFSPlugins directory, even when I'm not trying to connect to a remote server etc. Does it try to phone home as part of the trial or is this for some other purpose? Thanks

    Hi Tom, sorry about the delay, only now I see this topic.

    No need to be paranoid, there's no phoning home activity as part of the trial, the only phone home activity Path Finder does is checking for updates (if you set it to do so and which it does by default but you can turn it off).

    Can you tell me which libraries exactly are accessed by Path Finder?

    Thanks for clarifying. I saw it accessing NetFSPlugins but this could well be smb etc.
