Hi all,
First time user and new to the OSX world.
I have 2 computers 1 running 10.4.x and 1 running 10.5.2.
I have a new Qnap 409 pro network attached storage device. I want to create a backup from each computer to the qnap. I created shares and am able to mount the drives on each client computer.
For some reason, I am unable to see the mounted drives from within SD!. I am trying to create a sparse image of my local HD and save it to the mounted drive (images).
The one running 10.4 can see the mounted 'images' drive, but the 10.5.2 can not.
Am I missing a setting on the 10.5.2 machine?
Thanks and sorry if this is a dumb question.

When you select "Disk Images...", we provide a standard OSX "file save" panel, RC. Anything in any other save panel should be perfectly visible in us as well... is that where you're looking?

Good eve Dave,
Thanks for quick reply.
Yes, that is where I was looking. Under 10.4.x the mounted drives are available in the pull down menu for location of save after selecting 'image' for type.
The new Mac running 10.5.2 doesn't display the mounted drives.

I can post some screen shots in the morning if it would be helpful.
Thanks so much,
Rich

Is the panel collapsed, perhaps? You might need to click the little arrow...

Hi, here is a screen grab from 10.4.11 Here I can see and select the network share 'backups' that is already mounted...

Sure. But Leopard is different. Expand the window with the arrow next to the top field.
