  1. Not sure if this will help -- but have you mounted the share *before* trying to find it in Time Machine? If not, then mount the share and you should see it listed. You only have to do this the first time. regards Sean
  2. Just wanted to share my experiences with Time Machine backups to a non-Time Capsule device (in my case, a SMB share). I followed the instructions provided and it still would not work, giving me a "NetAuthConnectToServerSync failed with error: 80" in the logs. After much head-scratching, I found that the only way to fix it was to use the IP address of the server providing the SMB share instead of it's (resolvable) name. I had read other posts saying you had to have a numeric password but that was certainly not the case for me, so may be a red-herring. Once I did this, the backups sprang into life and, so far, seem to be working perfectly. regards Sean
