Cannot create realative path. File is on another drive?

I created a site for a potential client. He liked it but won't be ready for it for a month or so. So I got out the Missing Manual and started going through the tutorials. I created a site and put it on my desktop. I set DW to save the files to that folder. As I was going through the layout tutorial, it wanted me to set a graphic as a background. When I tried to, DW said "...cannot set relative path. The file seems to be on another hard drive..." For some reason DW is saving all my CSS files to the site I created earlier, which is on another hard drive and I don't know how to make it stop.

Please help!

Have you tried to switch to Dreamweaver's code view to fix the path?

Or you can use other editors like notepad to change the path first

Yeah, that's what I finally had to do.

Why does it suddenly change paths all by itself?

mooreted,

Dreamweaver is so smart... =.=""

it will automatically change all the paths and links when ur file is save as... in another directory

Well, sometimes I wish it would be a little less smart. If I have several sites in the Site Manager, it seems to mix sites up and gets me lost and confused.

Thanks very much for the help. I appreciate it.
