Hi Max, why are you using import java.nio.channels.* ?

It is safer to call the "mkdirs()" method when creating a directory, since this will work even if there are multiple directory levels that need to be created.
Once the full path exists, then you can easily save file there.

For more information, you should look at the Java API specification. In particular, you can look at the documentation for the File Class. I strongly encourage you to familiarize yourself with the Java API documentation. It is a great resource to help you find the answers to questions like this.
