I’m a first time user of a WD Live on a Mac network (Dink Wireless) with a Mac BookPro (Lion) iMac (Snow Leopard) MacMini, IPad& ipod.
I immediately made folders within the individual shares & started copying files from & to the WD drive in finder & between Macs. I also started making editing changes on the iPad to pdf files on the NAS
Are there any caveats on this sort of use? Can I safely use the WD as a proper server drive while also using unlimited mac file sharing between computers.
I’ve noticed that the MacBookPro slows considerably when a time machine backup is on & I try to access the NAS simultaneously. Is it normal to schedule backups rather than use wireless time machine backups in this situation? The software seems to do a complete backup each time & shows only the last backup in WD dashboard
