How to change the Backup directory location

Your post

     I used to be able to do this in old versions pretty easily, but I can't figure it out in FMS 11/12:

     I keep a clone of the boot drive, and wan't to have FMS make a nightly copy to the active data folder on the other machine (I would just need to move the files into the data folder and restart FMS). Similarly I want to have a different backup run to a USB thumb drive.

     Unfortunately I keep running into invalid path issues: I've got the trailing slash, but I just can't get any other folder to work than the regular Backups folder. Even tried to have the USB drive set to ignore permissions, but still no luck.

     What am I missing?
