Title

Setting pathname for backups on mac

Post

     I have been trying to backup my FM dbs to another folder but cannot work out how to setup the pathname - always get an error unless it it local folder under my database.

     Can you advise how to setup the path , e.g. 

     Set Variable [ $fileSpec; Value: "/Users/myname/FM Backups"   & Get ( FileName ) & ".fmp12" ]

     If I remove '/Users/myname/ then it works, but that is not what I want, as l also am considering using an external drive. Have I missed a mac file specifier?

      

     Many thanks.
