[texworks] technical problem involving \include, \includegraphics \graphicspath and grffile package

I have a couple of difficulties with my Latex document which I hope you can resolve. I have a main file in which a chap2.tex is included:
In chap2.tex I include a graphic file fig1.pdf using \includegraphics within the figure environment. The graphic file is in a directory other than the current directory in which main.tex is. The path to the directory contains, however, space characters and that's the source of my problems. I use grffile package together with \graphicspath:
\graphicspath{../../My Graphic Files/}
but get the error message:"! Package pdftex.def Error: File `fig1.pdf' not found.

See the pdftex.def package documentation for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.
l.20 ...udegraphics{fig1.pdf}
However, when I don't use \graphicspath and include the full path of the graphic file in \includegraphics I have no difficulty and the final .pdf file is produced:
\includegraphics{../../My Graphic Files/fig1.pdf}
Do you know how I can get rid of this pesky error? I don't want to write the full path every time I use \includegraphics.
Thank you.
