I want to create a directory with a script on a local server. The 'server' an old (headless) intel Mac Mini I have sitting under a living room table.
I've done this on a Windows machine with 'Google Drive File Stream' but I just can't seem to do the same at home with my Mac Mini. Well, thats not quite true, it works with 'inset' into a container but I want to create the file structure via a script that I can use to store large files associated with each record.
So I have a Mac Mini : Karl's Mac mini
On it is a share/folder : Documents which I mount on my desktop
I've exhausted every method I know to save 'anything' on the Network Drive but all I get is
"[my record name] could not be created on this disk. Use a different name, or make room on the disk, unlock it or use a different disk."
• The script sets the record's name field as : $name
• Then sets the path as : [$path & "###/Volumes/Documents/CT/Characters/" & $name & "/""]
(### represents every combination I have tried from Karl's Mac mini/Volume/Documents to filemac:/Volume/Documents... and numerous others.
• Then 'save as pdf, dialog off, current record, create folders on
But it fails every time.
I've dragged the mounted share into Terminal which gives me... [/Volumes/Documents]
But unless I use "insert into a container" it just wont work.
I want to hit a button that will create my desired folder path on the share [/Volume/Documents/CT/Characters/character name/
Which I can then open with another script and drag large files into that I neither wish to store in my database or on my Mac.
Any suggestions will be appreciated, Karl.
