Directory not empty

Trying to use the export/import feature. I go to export file. I choose my file. Error message I get is: The directory you choose to export the data to must be empty. I am attempting to export to an external drive I just reformated the external drive. It's empty. I stuck a random file name in just to have a file name, and it didn't like that either.

I'm stumped. How much emptier can a reformated drive be?

I need to move my books to 2 different computers as back-up.

Thank you.

IIRC You can't put the Library in a root folder. Make a folder with the OS, then export to that
