In Lightroom, the Export command won't let me choose an export directory, even when I choose "Specific Folder" in the "Export To:" field. My choices is limited to my desktop. I cannot even choose an other hard drive.

Definitely looks like the same issue at the root as:

Workaround is to simply type the full path of the folder you are exporting to in the text entry box at the bottom of the file browser dialog or clean up the desktop so there aren't so many files on it.

Knowledge Based document on this issue:

Locations for import, export, and backup are limited | Lightroom 3 | Windows

This issue is fixed in Lightroom 4 and later.
