    • Time Machine (AFP) backup disaster. Can't figure out what went wrong

      Hi all,

      Im new to OMV and most of NAS stuff but I decided to setup a Time Machine backup on OMV 4 using AFP. Overall easy process but 2 major hurdles. Im using a recent Mac laptop.

      1) Initial backup keeps stopping. I had to force backup to start about 20x before it completed (120GB)
      2) After completing the initial backup, I started clearing space on the laptop thinking my data is safe and 24 hours later when I tried accessing the backup it was saying that resource is unavailable so I restarted the laptop, only to find out that the initial backup has been DELETED and a new initial backup has started.

      Can someone with more experience please make a comment about this?

      Cheers
      Petr
    • Looks like OMV can't be used with timemachine.
