small init.m problem

I'm using V6.01 under XP.

In order to get Mathematica to find files in by backup directory, I 
put the following in an init.m file in Docs and 
Settings\MyUserName\Application Data\Mathematica\Kernal :


It seems to work nicely (it finds my files and outputs files 
into this directory by default) but every time I run a 
notebook I get the following in a Messages window:

Syntax::stresc: Unknown string escape \M.

It doesn't seem to hurt anything and I've been ignoring it 
for months -- but just for info, can someone please tell me 
what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.
