[enhancement] New default media source #14307
In MODX, the FIlesystem source is set by default, but any user can see the system files in the file viewer, which is not correct (if user access is not set).
I suggest creating a second media source and linking it to the /assets/ folder and set it as default. This folder /assets/ already in MODX and it is intended for non-system files. For example, it can also upload static files to the new source.
p.s. It is also worth changing the picture "No Preview Available" to an icon, since The picture is of poor quality and does not look very good, see the picture below.

Considering that MODX is installed with a single admin/sudo user, I would suggest setting up an assets media source like @Ruslan-Aleev mentioned but make it the default media source rather than the filesystem root.
