Attachments in Separate File



I am developing a solution and I have concerns about file size for attachments.  I am concerned that significantly increasing the file size of my solution will make it difficult for back up, etc.

I noticed that filemaker allows for some level of working between multiple files.  I would like to know if anyone can recommend using a separate file for all attachments so that the only file size growth is with the separate filemaker file dedicated to attachments.

Please let me know if anyone has any advice or recommendations about this.  I have implemented a system which copies the file to the host computer's file system, but I'm finding that this can be buggy when shared across a network due to access issues.  I'd like to alleviate any complications if possible.

Thank you!
