  1. Thanks so much for this. Fingers crossed working nicely for me now. Apple are real f***ers, breaking/disabling this in 10.6. I'm sure it's to sell more of their TimeCapsules. I might have bought one, had recent reports shown them as only lasting around 17 months. That's not much good for a backup solution! I am backing up to an old iBook (> 6 years) with a Drobo attached - my home server. One important thing I learned from all the threads on this topic is that if you are backing up to a Mac OS machine running anything older than Leopard, you need to mount the backup share with SMB not AFP. For some reason TimeMachine is not able to keep AFP shares before Leopard mounted for backup. I have SharePoints on the iBook host an SMB share for the TimeMachine backups.
