Filemaker Server Database Backups

Your post

     Hello. I'm hoping someone may be able to help me with probably a really simple solution.

     I have 3 databases and they are being backed up by Filemaker Server in to the Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Backups folder (this is on a Mac Mini Server).

     One of the databases is getting quite large as we have photos in there. I then use Synchronise Pro to then do a remote off site back up over our ADSL of the Backups folder which is taking absolutely ages with this large database in it.

     Is it possible to set up an additional script in Filemaker Server to an additional back up of the smaller databases only to a different folder other than the Backups folder? I could then get Synchronise Pro to back this up remotely leaving me to do a manual back up of the larger database on to a removable hard drive. I hope this makes sense!

     I did try setting up a new script but I couldn't create a 'valid path' to the folder I had created on the Server hard drive.

     Many thanks for any advice.
