Several networked and non-networked options for Time Machine backups
Authored by: JMoVS on Apr 10, '11 03:01:56AM

I looked it up. It uses afp and the volumes are showing up in the volume selction of Time Machine. I DON'T have to write thing like the "showunsupported..." into the terminal, it just works. It is natively supported and creates the typical sparsebundle like the TC also does when you use it.
As I said before, Lacie natively supports it and also some trustworthy mac magazines here in germany testetd it too and restore worked flawelesly for them.
And it don't use smb for share, I know that for sure, it uses afp with native support for TM and internally creates a sparsebundle therefore.
Hope this helps! ;-)
