As you may already know that the AFP & Time Machine in the latest Mac OS X 10.7 Lion does not support 3rd-party NAS with old version of Netatalk, which means you can no longer use a Synology DiskStation as a backup device for use with Apple's Time Machine, or as a dedicated AFP file server. Fortunately, these issues have already been addressed in our DiskStation Manager (DSM) 3.2 beta which will work with all existing Synology DiskStations released in 2008 or later.
Although Synology DiskStations released in 2007 and before are already out of DSM upgrade service, however we have came to a decision that we will release a special DSM version for Synology x07-series DiskStations, specifically addressing the incompatibility issue with AFP & Time Machine in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. This will ensure our customers continue to enjoy their Synology DiskStations and not being punished by simply upgrading their Mac OS X. It is now scheduled to be available for free download around mid-August. Please stay tuned.
For users who have already encountered these issues, it is suggested to use Samba file transfer service as the temporarily solution.
Your feedback is invaluable to us because only by knowing what you think and need can we tailor our customer services to best meet your requirements. That is the simple belief Synology holds.
