10.5: Create a Time Machine size limit for networked disks
Authored by: dbs on Nov 26, '07 11:02:16AM

Based on your comment I set about testing AFP to a third-party NAS. This almost worked.

The old backups were correctly deleted (according to the log in the Console) but after deleting them I can only see one backup in the Time Machine GUI. The other backups exist properly (at least based on a quick examination) in the sparsebundle, but they are not accessible form the GUI.

This is a bit disturbing. It seems like something is really broken with sparsebundles. I don't know what would have to be different for AFP on a 10.5 machine to make this work.

I will test this later over AFP to a 10.5 machine and see if it magically works there. Otherwise it's back to CarbonCopyCloner for me and my $500 NAS...
