External Data Storage for PDFs

Discussion created by on Jan 19, 2018

I know this has been discussed in years past, but I'm not seeing anything new (which probably means nothing's changed!) but I thought I'd give it a shot.


We run a electronic medical record that currently stores attached documents in separate "Documents" FileMaker files, and as you can imagine, this is very quickly making our server space disappear (as well as the backup drive also on the server.


I'd love to split the attachments off into Google Drive (which we have "unlimited" storage space) but have not been able to figure out how to map to it. As I read here years ago, that's because external storage for containers must reside in the same folder as the FM Server application.


Has anyone come up with a good solution for this issue? We are an all MAC house, if that makes a difference.
