    Fix your Time Machine with the Flux Capacitor

    We made a quick little Automator application that removes the Time Machine restrictions on what kind of disk you can back up to. We found the tip here.

    We are now happily backing up or Leopard machines to the SMB Share on or DLink DNS-323.

    Download the Flux Capacitor here. It is an automator action so you'll see the unix command that it runs. After you are done, Voila! You'll see ALL of your shares in Time machine - even wireless.

    I'm bumping this just to keep it up there because I'm interested in knowing other's experience with this. My Lacie SAFE drive is incompatable with Time Machine and I'm wondering if this will make it work.

    Yes, this is exactly what I'm looking for in a backup utility. If you try it, let know how it works for you.

    MacRumors' own Mindflux discovered here first

    This little tool just writes the script and handles the process for you, the same script that Mindflux discovered and gave the community on this thread.

    Yes, it works so far for my Fantom drive
    You can download it and decide to use it and activate it or not, so it might be a good idea

    Thanks Mindflux!
