question to Time Machine gurus...

Can Time Machine handle shares on a NAS? How do I set this up?

One more question - who is the manufacturer? when did you buy it?
Not all of them support time machine to NAS.

My ReadyNAS Pro supports Time Machine 100%.

I have a 1TB share set up on it, backing up a MB, MBP, and a Mini. Time Capsule finds it without a problem.

I carefully checked some NAS out there before deciding which one would be the best for my Mac. LACIE 2big network works flawlessly for me.

I bought it from:

NCIX.com - Buy LaCie 2BIG Network 2TB 7200RPM 32MB Cache USB 2.0 RAID 1 Gigabit Ethernet External Hard Drive - 301259U In Canada.

$170 discount was the best I could find. And this model is upgradable to allow Time Machine, Bit Torrent, Media Server, etc.
