you made not only my day, but the entire year 2015! That was indeed a fabulous hint
with a network drive. Yep, two eyes and one brain more. Life is sometimes difficult
as lone warrior!

Now I can dig into Zim Desktop Wiki. A new phase in my life...

Many thanks and greetings

1. It's not possible to select an network drive via the folder/file
    dialog. So I copied the path from the clipboard.
2. I get the following error message:
    File not found:\\\Network-drive\drive.nas\The-name-of-the-USB-Stick\FolderMain\FolderSub
    Why are there three backslashes shown: \\\Network-drive\...
    And why is the location not found?
3. It's not possible to resume from that error. File notebooks.list in
    must be deleted. That's really inconvenient, especially for a Zim beginner.

Any hints?
