Overwriting a copy of the DB with the same name

Post

     I am trying to 'save a copy' of my current active database to a drop box folder which will be used as another back up. I want the script to run at the end of the day, and over write the previous copy alrerady in the dropbox folder. I have written this script here Let ( [ F = Get ( FilePath ) ] ;"mydatabase"  & ".fmp12" ) // Let ]

     but it wont let me overwrite the prev copy of the file of the same name. Is there any way of getting round this? 
     I am using a mac. I havento worked out how to save a file to another folder other then on the desktop, not the 24hr timing..any help on this would be great too. The dropbox folder will also be on a mac server...
