    NAS going in standby during Time Machine backup causing corruption?
    I've on a regular basis (each month/couple of months) a corruption of my Time Machine backup. Is it possible that it is caused by my Lacie NAS going in sleep mode while Time Machine is taking backup?
    And if so, can I prevent my Lacie NAS going into sleep while TM is taking backup? (I've enabled Lacie NAS Deep sleep using its Power on/off schedule

    Hi,

    If the NAS is working normally it will not sleep while an active transfer is in progress. Depending on the type of corruption that's taking place, you may be able to resolve it when it happens by using FTP to connect to the time machine share and deleting the apple.db file and folder. That is usually the file that gets corrupted and makes it unable to connect to an AFP source.

    Please contact our support at www.lacie.com/mystuff or 503.844.4500 (USA) to investigate further what may be happening. If its something more serious than the above solution there may be service we need to perform.

    ~mn, LaCie
