I’ve recently purchased an iMac running OS El Captain. I’d like to use the MBL together with Time Machine to back it up on a regular basis.
But, I cannot get this to work at all and am falling at the first hurdle. When I get to the initial setup page of Time Machine on the iMac it ask me to select the backup drive the MBL is not available as an option. I have checked that the MBL has the latest software.
If I select the IP address of the MBL on the ‘Finder’, ‘connect to server’, it does see the MBL and shows me the file structure etc.
I can’t see what I’m doing wrong, but I obviously am.
Can anyone let me have a line by line simple set of instructions to get this set up and working.
