Password necessary when saving a self-contained copy

Discussion created by PatrickRisch on May 2, 2014



When I save a self-contained copy of a FileMaker file (with externally stored container data) I need to enter a password.

The file is opened with the admin password.


1. I open the file with the admin password

2. I choose 'Save a copy as... self contained copy' from the file menu

3. The saving starts, FileMaker calculated the needed disk space.

4. I need to enter the password


Why do I need to enter the password? Can I prevent this for a better user experience?
