    Go to Administrator option in the tool and create a new external connection. In the UNC path, provide the location of the directory iwhere you want to save the export . Ensure the directory exists.
    Example -
    External Connection Name - Exports
    UNC Path - c:\drm\exports

    In the export screen Once the connection is created, you can refer to the location by the external connection name. Hope this helps.
