vim 8.0 file explorer restrictions

Musat Eduard
hy, my question here is about the allowed locations in the new vim 8.0 file explorer netrw 156.

i'm running vim 8.0 on a windows 7 system and i'm having this issue whenever i open gvim (the one that runs in a window as opposed to running in cmd) the default path in :pwd is c:\users\"user". if i use the :Explore command it brings up the file explorer showing all the files in there but i can only go up in file paths up to c:\users and that's it, i can't go any upper than that.

more than that if i use the :cd command to go to a different drive (d:), it does change the directory successfully and it does show it if i use :pwd but if i use :Explore it doesn't show anything, instead it just does a split screen of the same file containing the same text i have in the initial file.

more than that, if i create an asdasd.txt file in d:\ and open it with vim and then use :Explore again it does nothing, just goes back to the same line of text i was on in command mode, almost as if the program is looking for access to that directory or cancelling the command because of something like that.

also, i used vim 7.4 before this and it would any of the commands mentioned as expected. any ideas what the problem might be? does it need any special configuration?

thanks,
edi

I suspect most if not all of these issues have disappeared with v162h of
netrw (http://www.drchip.org/astronaut/vim/index.html#NETRW).  Please
try it out and see if you're still having problems.  I don't have a
windows 7 system available to me at the moment to try this out, btw.
