    I am trying to make the place where Yosemite stores snapshots a folder on a external USB Drive. The path for where I am storing is /Volumes/Programs/Training/Snaps, so I add it to the line instruction in terminal like so:

    Chriss-MacBook-Pro:~ chrisjohnston$ defaults write location defaults Volumes/Programs/Training/Snaps

    2015-04-24 22:49:29.629 defaults[4125:193552] Unexpected argument Volumes/Programs/Training/Snaps; leaving defaults unchanged.

    The line under it show the message back from Terminal say something was wrong. Does anybody know what I am doing wrong? Thanks

    MacBook Pro, OS X Yosemite (10.10.3)

    You are missing the slash at the beginning of the path argument.
