Hello everyone.
I'm just seeking some technical advice, having only been in the ICT profession for 2 months i'm a little lost. We have a Mac OS X server 10.4 running here. Recently i've been having backup troubles with are backup software saying that the volume size is to big and can't be bigger than 2 gb. Now are external harddrive was formatted as SMB initially and i was told this was the problem.
I reformatted that to HFS+ and the backup ran fine, however we have now bought a proper 1TB network hard drive which is AFP format. Does this limit file size to 2 GB like SMB or would it allow the backup file to exceed the 2 gb 'threshold'.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks in advance
