@BigBearf / @mdgm..
OK! I think I'm there -- even if I'm not 100% sure what I've done.
a) I switched from share to user mode.
b) I followed the instructions from BigBearf which did show the share
I then tried to start up Time Machine again, selected the share, put my password in, and bang, the backup is off and running. Excellent
Few follow-up questions:
1) Can you tell me what possible changes share-> user mode might create for me? Is there anything else that I should be aware of?
2) I do not know how to enable SSH or whether I should.
3) I've always accessed my media drive through SMB on my mac (smb://192.168.1.112/media
). Should I use SMB or should I use AFP? I tried command-K with AFP://192.168.1.112/media
and it did not work even though AFP was enabled on the share. I put SMB://192.168.1.112/media
and it prompted me for the password again and I was back in. Just not sure what is recommended -- realizing that I'm accessing this share via my Mac, my PC, and a few different Media Streamers (Popcorn A110, Xbox 360, etc.).
4) One other Time Machine question (that you may or may know the answer to: The backup that is running is showing ... of 135.12 GB to backup. However the drive shows 221 GB used. It can't compresss it that much, can it? I had it exclude maybe 30 GB of video files, but it's still a lot that seems to be "missing". I'll check the backup after it's done, but curious if that type of compression is typical.
Thanks for the help guys.
