    With tsm can you specify a temporary directory to be used when a backup is created?

      We're Upgrading to 2018.3.4 and are reviewing the differences between tabadmin and tsm.  When I am creating a backup, after having setthe default backup location to another drive I noticed that while the backup is running it is using C:\ instead of F:\ where F:\ is where the final .tsbak will be created.

       

      tabadmin had -t

      but tsm's -t does something different, it will only delete temporary files
