Trouble creating base directories for externally stored container fields
Operating system version
Description of the issue
I want to store container data in a folder other than the one that holds the data base.
In manage containers storage I define a base directory such as /MacintoshHD/Users/Phil/Photos/Scanning/ (Phil is my user name.
In the Options Storage tab I reference this path, click Store container data externally and choose Open storage and provide a new path such as "Prints/Print/"
Container data would be moved to a folder in another directory
Error message below and nothing happens
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
The target base directory /MacIntosh HD/User .... same name as mentioned above .../ could not be created.
I have tried several variations of names working with both folders that exist and ones that I would like to have FMP create -- I get the same result.
If I select the option to store in the same directory as the database, the process works without any problem.
