      4. Select the file you uploaded to your Private files, choosing 'Create an alias/shortcut to the file' then save changes.
      5. Backup the course, and at the end of backup process, verify that a warning is displayed: "File references to external contents are included in the backup file. These won't work if the backup is restored on a different site."
