When is the final solution for Time Machine coming???

Post by Rolstad » Thu May 01, 2008 7:12 pm

Hello. I am using a MacBook Pro 2,2 C2D with 10.5.2. I have problems with TM, and I am waiting for a solution from the QNAP team.

i've been using the ts-109 for remote time machine for a while & all of a sudden my backup sparsebundle is showing as corrupted. Sounds like this happened to a lot of folks with the latest mac OS update... Anyhow, got me to wondering about using a USB drive that could be actually connected to the mac for major backup (like first use) and restore functions and serve as a q-usb drive the rest of the time? Question is I dont think qnap will recognize whatver file format apple wants to use for time machine right? Has anyone tried this out? I dont have a USB drive to even test with. Might just go get one...

You backup something in HFS+ to another format. It's not good i think.

How is the success rate in using 10.5 Time Machine with any QNAP server's e.g. TS109 ?, does it actually work, as I see from googling that a lot of non Apple solutions are having problems ?
