Questions about using NAS on Mac OS.

Copying image files fails with "item is in use"

I am using my QNAP TS-219 as a FileServer for backing up my digital photos, but ever since I switched from PC to Mac it has been almost impossible. Every time I copy images to a share on my QNAP the operation will only copy a few and then stop with the error: "The operation can’t be completed because the item “DSC_XXXX.JPG” is in use."

After the error, the copy operation is rolled back, and ...

NAS TS-210, v.4.1.1

What can ...

AFP suddenly not showing in Lion

Hi everyone,

I have two older laptops with OSX 10.7.5 Lion installed. Since they are not in every day use I am not sure how long and what (update?) caused them to not show AFP in the finder anymore. I have a Qnap TS269L with Firmware 4.1.1 installed. AFP with DHX2 and Bonjour are enabled.

I can access the shares manually by connecting to afp://192.168.-.-. No problem browsing the ...

Unix file permissions headache rwx


when copying files to a Turbo NAS share, the file permissions are not preserved but are always set to -rwx------ for every file. This gives me headaches.

I have a TS-269L (4.0.3) serving files through SAMBA to a MacBook (OSX 10.8.5). I mount the share on the MacBook using Finder. Finder automagically displays the NAS in the sidebar, I click on it, enter my credentials and select the share I want to use. The ...

How to drag-drop files to QNAP?

Hi, when I open Finder on my Mac Air, I can drag-drop files from QNAP to the Mac -- but not from the Mac to the QNAP. I assumed from the promotional literature for the NAS that I could drag-drop files.

Can anyone help? I assumed it must be something in my System Preferences, but I've tried everything and nothing seems to work.

Version: QNAP TS-420
Firmware: 4.1.0 (20140612)
Operating System: OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 ...

AFP (netatalk) - CNID data still stored in MYSHARE/.AppleDB


When a shared folder is accessed via AFP, a .AppleDB folder is created at the root of the share to store the CNID database. However, from versions 3.x of netatalk, and with actual configuration, I think it should not.

- Netatalk is in version 3.0.5 (QNAP firmware up-to-date 4.1.0) (current netatalk version : 3.1.6)
- CNID backend is DBD
- dbpath for all shared folders are : /var/netatalk/CNID//.@cnid/SHAREDFOLDERNAME (default location)

What do you think ...
