      I upgraded my server to Moodle 2.2 but found the legacy course file area accessed via the file picker started pointing to System\Front page. (see image filePicker.jpg) So as a teacher I see no files.

      If I click on System I can then see categories and work my way to my course.

      The legacy course file are from the LH menu remained correct in all courses.

      No errors were reported during the upgrade I tried accessing from different browsers. I also tried the upgrade on two different servers.

      I have restored the server back to 2.1.2 and all is working properly again i.e I can see the course files area from the file picker.

      Any help appreciated.

      Replication steps:

      1. Upgraded Moodle 2.1.2 server to Moodle 2.2
      2. Go to a course
      3. Click Add a resource -> select file
      4. Click on Add
      5. Click on Legacy Course files
      6. Points to system\Front page
