Hi There.
I have multiple Tigers/Leopards at my place and I would like to bring in a centralized back up system. However, instead of using one portable external HDD and plug/unplug each time for different macs, can I use a network attacheed storage raid box as a back up destination?


Thanks

If the NAS RAID supports HFS+ volumes that can be mounted on your Macs then you could probably use them as targets (destinations) for SD!. Otherwise you'd could clone to different sparse image volumes.

Thanks for replying.

Any idea on how to format a NAS Raid box to HFS format? :confused:

Actually, you can't format a NAS RAID as HFS+, usually -- you'll use an image, as explained in "Backing up over a network" in the User's Guide.

Thanks for chiming in, Dave. I wasn't sure what might be supported (or not).

Thanks Dave
Can you please provide me the URL?

The raid box I purchased is DLINK DNS-323, and its on raid 1, and is in format ext1.

Any Idea? Thanks
