Using the root directory avoids permission issues -- users always have write access there.
I don't believe that's true. IIRC, some Windows versions protect the root of the system drive from non-admin users. And I *know* I have had problems with NTFS-formatted removable drives plugged into systems they were not originally formatted on, where the owner of the drive no longer exists. They are rare corner cases, for sure, but they do happen and frankly are probably harder to explain when they come up than saying "your virus checker is interfering". Everyone expects their virus checker to screw up their system (cure worse than disease syndrome :-))
