How to change the "Path to Documents" in FileMaker Pro 7 after a data migration?

Post

Hello,

 

We recently got a new OSX server, and had to move our data around.  It was previously on a second drive on the server, and now everything is on one big drive.  I imagine this means that the "Path to Documents" need to be changed.  I've tried updating it but changing it and clicking "Update" but the path text below doesn't change, so you need to be logged in as an admin to change it?  Also, can you have spaces in the volume name?

 

I can flip through the records just fine, but when I click on the documents tab I cannot open any documents found within, so I suspected that the pathing is the culprit.  The documents exist, but their displayed pathing is obviously incorrect.

 

Also, will this change the pathing on all of the existing documents, or just new ones?

 

Thanks for any help you can get me!
