In the Gridbox 2.6.3, you can specify the Root Folder for the Gridbox Media Manager.

You can set the root folder in the Gridbox settings. To do this, click the "Options" icon in the left sidebar of the Gridbox admin panel. Select "Options" and in the "Path to Images Folder" field set the name of the folder.
