The specs say this NAS supports macOS 10.12 and later. Does this mean you won't be able to back up a Mac running an earlier OS, like 10.11, to this NAS?
Asked by: John-Paul
For what it's worth, my 2012 Mac Pro is running 10.11 with a DS920+ (whose client specs also indicate macOS 10.12 and later). I have not observed any problems with Time Machine alternating between an internal HDD and the DS920+.
