Lightroom 5: Import into subfolder won't untick

I used someone's lightroom 5 on mac and used the "import in subfolder" and gave the subfolder a name. Looks exactly like this



But now everytime it goes into the import screen this "import Subfolder" is always ticked, and always has that name I used one time. 
I really need to know how I can reset it to not be ticked by default. 

Thanks

Been a while since I used Lr5, but I believe it should just be pulling up the settings from your last successful import.  If you uncheck the box and run an import, the next time you go to the screen, it should default to the unchecked state.

If that's not the case, I'd try resetting Lr's preference file.  In Lr5 I don't believe they have the reset function built into the program, so you'll have to do it manually.   Here are a couple links that should help -
