How to Choose Catalog Backup Location??

Can anyone tell me how to choose the location for the Catalog Backup in Lightroom Classic (on Mac)?  I have the latest release (13.2) but seem no longer able to either locate the location of the backup or choose a different location.  The "General" tab of the "Catalog Settings" window has "Information" at the top about the current catalog's name, location, size, etc. However, the bottom "Backup" section only has the dropdown menu to select the frequency of backing up ... and nothing else (see below).  Is there a setting somewhere that I'm missing?  Thanks!

Ok ... so I feel a little embarrassed.  I see now that when I actually close Lightroom and it asks me if I want to back up the Catalog, I can then choose a location.  Thanks!

Yes, and that is how it's always been. Not very intuitive, but that's an Adobe trademark.

Yeah, no need to be embarrassed when the real issue is that the location option can't be found unless you're about to back up.

Yep. It really needs to be consolidated into one section. Nice and clear for everyone.
