I just installed a 2 TB MBL (to replace a defective LaCie Network Storage 2 which has been returned to LaCie).
It mounts automatically, using AFP protocol, on an iMac (OS X 10.6.8).
I know that I could also access the drive via the SMB protocol (although that introduces the problem of files with weird names like “_VUC69~7”, but that’s another story).
Is there a preferred protocol for accessing the drive? AFP or SMB?
