While this might work on your system, it may not work on others.

- you need to escape the backslashes (or just use forward slashes, they work on windows too)
- not all windows installations and versions have their user folders in
C:\Users\<username>. On windows too, you'll have to use something like %USERPROFILE% to
get to the correct directory if you want it to work correctly in all cases.
