Title

File References with Multiple External Drives

Your post

We have FileMaker Server 11 hosting several databases on rotating external hard drives (for back-up purposes). We are considering storing some of our container images with only a reference to the files, but are concerned that the file references may be lost when the external drive is changed.  Do file references remain intact if we are using different drives with the same file paths?  And does it matter if the the external drives have different drive letters assigned?
