Re: What happens to Time Machine?

are there recommended NASes?

I don't know about recent versions as our Macs are a couple of versions behind, but we have TimeMachine on two Macs targetting two different NASes. The QNAP NAS can only share one TM-compatible target, so only one of the Macs can backup to the QNAP. I have no idea about Buffalo, Netgear units etc, but if Time Machine was my main concern I'd be very careful to check before buying.

The FreeNAS unit, on the other hand, can share as many TM-compatible targets as you like :-)
