    I was trying to setup TimeMachine backup to my Synology NAS. I used to have USB-HD worked fine. However, followed the instruction I always have a "backup failed" message, even I can access the TimeMachine folder on NAS from Finder.

    Anyone have idea?

    --------------------Update Start---------------
    Problem solved: I deleted the USB HD Time Machine choice, only use the NAS, then backup works!
    --------------------Update End----------------

    One more simpler question:
    Can Mac to connect to NAS with different accounts at the same time? For example, mount a TimeMachine from NAS with "tm" account, at the same time, mount "Photos" from NAS with "admin" account.
