External Containers In Filemaker 12 no add folder option

I have Filemaker Server 12 and am looking at using the external storage for container files

 

My understanding was that if someone loads a file locally (where external storage has been flagged in the database and the field) everyone should be able to see it but this is not the result I am getting

 

If I am using this option do I have to store the file within the field rather than a reference to it?

If the original file is on a server can I store a reference to it and still use the external storage option.

 

 

I am also mystified as to why the default location is [hostedlocation]/testodbc when in the documentation is seems to be [hostedlocation]/Files.
