Here is how things stand right now with compatibility issues between our products and OS Lion in regards to Time Machine:
We have sped up the vetting and QA process that we usually go through when releasing firmware revisions to get you an update to get you all up and running. Note that this is a BETA release and there maybe bugs that we have not had time to iron out yet. So please be aware. Here is the link to the update:
And the How-to:
This only works with the following LinkStation products: LS-XHL, LS-CHL, LS-WXL, LS-WSXL, LS-VL, LS-WVL, LS-QVL, LS-XL Series
BTW this update now allows you to backup multiple Macs using Time Machine to the LinkStation instead of only one.
The CloudStor will not get an update to resolve this issue until August 29th, and I am sorry about that. I will however tell you why (and also give you a sneak peek). We have been developing an update to the CloudStor with a host of really cool new features. Because we are a month away from updating the whole firmware package, the engineers are unable to put out a Beta because there would be a whole host of things that would no longer work or work poorly. Here are a couple of things that will go into the new firmware to, hopefully, hold you over:
RSS support for BitTorrent
Private and Public Shares
Designate Multiple Users
USB Drive Support
We will have a new updates starting late August, we will most likely not have beta firmware as these are Business grade units and as such their firmware gets extensive testing.
