Network reliability issue confirmed...
Authored by: haralds on Apr 08, '11 09:42:37AM

I have been using TimeMachine since it came out.
MacBooks throughout the house are backed up on a Time Capsule - seems to work fine.

But I have tried various schemes to back up my Mac Pro, which has six terabytes of space, and is the iTunes/Photoshare server in the house. I finally had to resort to an attached drive solution, which due to its two terabytes limit has issues. I use ChronoSync to back up iTunes changes to a RoboShare - slow.

I have tried various networked servers, but the combination of networked drives (SMB) and a large file system has always resulted for me in a virtual volume corruption after a few weeks. None of the available tools seem to be able to recover those corruptions.
