Hi,

Just wondered if anyone can point me in the direct of setting up my NAS to do the following as I am a NAS newbie.

1 Volume for Mac Time Machine Backup
1 Volume for Super Duper cloning of my Mac OS
1 Volume (with multiple folders) for file backups

At th moment I just have one volume with multiple folders I use for file back up and iTunes storage so my Sonos system can pick up on my iTunes files but I'd like to add the Super Duper clone and Time Machine backups to my Nas as well.

Many thanks!

You can't organise your XHL via volumes. There is only one disk
-> one volume.
You need to use the folders for that purpose.
As far as I remember, the Time Machine was integral part of the
XHL Web GUI. Use that Buffalo provided feature.
Use a separate folder for "Super Duper" and maybe also a separate
user with own access rights to this folder, if you want to "hide" this
folder from others.
Same for backup folders.

Hey kenatonline,

Many thanks for your reply. I had hoped I could partition he LS-XHL as I believe from what I've read the Super Duper backup will need a Mac formatted drive.

However I have found the Time Machine open you mentioned so many thanks for that! :D
