Since buying my MBL in January, I’ve been unable to make the thing work reliably with my Mac. Despite the promise of set-and-forget backup out-of-the-box, I just can’t get it to work properly. I’m still waiting for a response from WD Tech Support on how to get the thing to speed up to a timeframe that would deliver a back up within my lifetime (at one stage it was estimating >59k days…I managed to get it down after doing various tweaks found online, but then it bounced back to a mollases-like time-frame.
If WD is unable to address this, I’m wondering if anyone in the community using a mac and time machine can offer a solution – even if it means reconfiguring and wiping WD’s software – that would…
Allow me to continue to connect via router, so I’m able to back up via wifi or ethernet
Offers reasonable back up speeds (I’ve got a 3Tb MBL, which is supposed to service a MacBook Pro equipped with 1.25 Tb capacity.
Offers what’s likely to be a stable, straight-forward solution.
Any suggestions would be welcome with a sigh of relief!
