I don't think there is an html solution for this, but here's the problem:

I am working on a web based app, as part of it's functionality it performs backups. i need the user to be able to specify a location to backup to. i cannot use the form input type 'File', because this will only returns a file path, whereas i am only interested in a directory, not a specific file.

at the moment the user has to manually type in the path, but this leaves alot of margin for error.

how can i browse for a directory and return the directory path?

cheers for any assistance.
