A few weeks ago I posted an article on the then forthcoming HP MediaSmart Server 2.5 Update. Well the update was released last week for all HP MediaSmart Server EX485 and EX487 owners and so I thought it was time to do a more in-depth look at this new update.
A few weeks ago, I wrote an article called Backing Up a Mac with an HP MediaSmart EX485 or EX487. The article explained how to back up a Mac using Time Machine to your HP MediaSmart EX485 or EX487. This was possible due to some added software that HP included with the new MediaSmart Servers. Now for all those people who don’t yet have either the EX485 or the EX487, but still have either the EX470 or EX475, MediaSmartHome.com has a detailed article on how to do pretty much the same thing using SMB Shares.
