Hi Guys, I am aware from my research that it is possible with some tweeking to get my time machine backups for my macbook air and my wifes imac to use my new HPN54L micro server which is running on Server 2012 Essentials R2. I am new to this server stuff so still very much learning but intend to use a 3TB HDD exclusively for OSX Time MAchine backups, a personal Network folder each for bits and bobs, and a shared Folder for Software etc we both might need access to. My question is, can I format the HDD's as windows server will see fit (not sure what that would be? FAT32? NTFS?) or will I need to partition the HDD and format the Time Machine partition as something TM wants like SMB or APF (no idea what these are TBH). Furthermore will I have issues with Windows based OS and OSX based both using network folders. I remember having to install software on my MAC or PC to be able to share a HDD. Also if I had issues with my MAC will I be able to restore from the network backup? Or would I need to transfer the backups to a HDD and plug that into a USB on the mac? Sorry for all the questions, just about to install my 3x 3TB HDD's and want to ensure I set them up and format correctly.
