Can this help?:

Remember that Java itself recognizes the backslash as an escape character.
So while the above might be OK for keyboard input, Within a Java program
you'll need to include a double backslash in order to pass the \ through to
InstantDB, and you'll also need to escape the double quotes. So the above
would be written in a Java program as: "He said \\\"How's That\\\"". 

Thus:

"C:\\tosh.gif" or "c:/tosh.gif"

Works for me!
