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 : SetDirectory["c:\\Backup\Mma"] 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.
