Now it's working. I did following:

Unselected the whole AppleTalk section in shared win/mac area.
Renamed my new folder from "MacMini Backup" to "MacMini_Backup" (no space)
Selected the folder to be hidden.
Re-checked the AppleTalk with the MacMini_Backup selected for TimeMachine.

After that, I could start up TimeMachine on my Mac, nad PUFF "MacMini_Backup" appeard! :D
That did not work for me. I will get the time machine running but have only two shared folders at the finder.
And the icon in the finder will change if the time machine is switched on !
It looks like a Airport Station if time machine is switcht on.
If you turn off time machine you will the see an icon thats looks like a IMac and you will have all your shared folders.

This must be a BUG !
Or Synology tell us how to setup the Time Machne :-)

Hi,

Time Machine works fine. Great feature :)

I was wondering if there was a way to limit the size of the Time Machine share, because it will eventually fill the NAS.

Any idea ?

In Disk Station Manager you can set storage Quota for each user. I found out that disk capacity taken by a user also includes data stored by the Time Machine service. You can for instance create an user called 'macback' and set a specific quotum.

It works. But... I noticed that if you start to fix and trix with the TM after you done the first backup it will fail (in my case) Tried it twice.

I can't seem to get this to work. I have followed the above advice -

Turned off appletalk
Named a folder TimeCapsule and hidden it from My Network Places.
turned on appletalk and rebooted the syno.
rebooted the MacBook

MacBook reports no devices available.

I do seem to have a problem getting the MacBook to reconnect the network drive too so maybe that is part of the issue.

Also for me: Timemachine works when enabled, but then the other shared folders disappear and can only
be accessed via FTP. Bonjour and SMB will not work anymore. Disable the timemachine option and Bonjour and SMB
works again.
Tried this on a DS508 and a DS107+

Please -Synology- take a look at this!

Thanks Thyge, TimeMachine didn't see the drive, I've followed your instructions and now it works.

I have been able to get it to work by turn SMB of and on I think the Mac find it as a SMB drive (BLUE) rather then AFS (WHITE) once it show up white time machine seams to work fine. Might be good test if you are still having issue to disable SMB on the Mac side see if that helps.

I can confirm the Time Machine issues:

Once the Time Machine feature has been activated, the other shared folders including the personal folder can no longer be accessed. Even when TM is using a separate user, this doesnt help.

SMB works, as noted by someone. Just hit Command-K and enter smb://enter.your.ip.adress/ and you're able to connect.

You can still use FileStation of course. Looking forward to another beta version :-D

I'm having this (or this kind of) issue as well. I'm setting up third or fourth time TimeMachine share and backup to my CS-407e/2.2beta, and trying to trace what is causing problems. My Macbook log has this about failing TimeMachine process:

I got a quick responce on this per email from Alex (Synology beta-guy):

So my problems is due to this - I'll try see if avoiding mac-sleep solves my "mac is not able to mount backp file" after succesfullly mounting afp-share (TimeMachine share).

Waiting to get the final release :!:
