Here’s my story:
Yesterday I had a power outage.
Today I try to connect to my MyBook on my mac as usual. No luck. The Mac says connection fails.
Tried to reboot everything: Mac, MyBook, Router. Nothing worked
I looked around on the forums and found that others also have trouble with AFP…
I can access the shares over SMB and FTP but not AFP (and of course Time Machine doesn’t work). Some forums posts advised to delete the Mac OS specific files on the MyBook (.AppleDB .TemporaryItems .DS_Store .AppleDesktop). Still no luck, even after a reboot.
I tried to disable and re-enable AFP in the MyBook Network config panel.
But it refuses to enable AFP again. Error says ‘Failed to update services’.
Can you help?
