I guess you are the first to notice ... Could you create an issue on the
project's Github issue tracker? If you're into Lua I'm also happy to
accept a patch :-)

I think `create_list` in fs.lua needs a fix to change "parent" to a list
of drives if necessary on Windows.

As a workaround you could create a shortcut to open another drive,
assuming you use Textredux hijack, in your init.lua:

keys.c1 = { io.open_file, 'D:/' }

Hope this helps,
