Hi @crsohan, welcome to the community. (;
You should find your external drive usually under /run/media/$USER/
In my case it’s named “Swap”.
Another way would be to just open your storage via Nautilus, navigate to the folder where your project stays.
Hit “STRG+L”, this will display the exact path in Nautilus. You can then copy this path and enter it in your file dialog.
