My original is in "Container Field Troubling"

 

I'm in the process of setting up an external drive for storing my images and I'm having a problem with establishing the Pathname to an external hard drive.  My database file is on a Mac Mini that has a 4TB external drive connected.

 

I'm using "Manage Containers" to create the pathname to the external drive, then I navigate to the table that has my container fields and I select

 

> Option: Storage

> Check: Store container data externally

> Select that pathname in "relative to:"

 

After selecting "Transfer Data" I'm getting an error message "Target Base directory is not valid"

 

I used the Network Path example for my Base Directory: \\ComputerName\ShareName\DirectoryName\
