@Jason -- I currently run the DS412+ but just got one of these DS1513+ units that I'm testing (and impressed with!) and may wind up making that my main DiskStation shortly here.
@Chip: I started digging into the QNAP stuff but stopped dead in my tracks as soon as the project manager told me that they didn't (and wouldn't) have any type of support for mixed-sized disks. For home and prosumer users, I see this as mandatory. Yes, there are performance gains to be had by matching disk sizes, but I don't see that as the most important thing for our target audience on MGG of here at TMO. Folks need flexibility, both at setup time and expansion time. If I put three 1TB drives in and then want to add two…
While we're going through all the options, people rave about SpinRite from Steve Gibson's GRC. It's Windows-only, but folks report great success with HFS+ drives there, too.
James, check the command. It sounds like you're not putting the backslash in before the space prior to the word 'Index' and, therefore, the Terminal is treating 'Index' as a separate part of the command instead of part of the file name.
Mark — sorry to hear you're having the same problems, but the good news is that it's the same. Assuming your Mac is also syncing iCloud Documents & Data (confirmed by looking in the iCloud system preference pane) that folder will be there. Searches, however, won't find it. You first need to go to your <home>/Library folder, which is hidden by default. To reveal it, click on the Finder's "Go" menu and then hold down the Option key on the keyboard. That will reveal the Library choice. Select it and, boom, you're there. Then in the that window look for…
@Sarah — Yep, there are some clients that have been built to workaround Gmail's IMAP limitations and require the use of the "All Mail" folder (Mailbox for iOS is one of them). For me it's not worth the tradeoff, so I don't use Mailbox. Obviously that's not something that's as easy to choose when it means foregoing the use of your BlackBerry. Really the issue is with Gmail — it was not originally built to work with IMAP access, and that was only added (begrudgingly, I might add) much later in the game as a band-aid, and it obviously has…
Julian — follow me (@DaveHamilton) on Twitter and I'll get you one.
Alex — I tried to send you an invite but it looks like someone's got you taken care of already!
@Enk: True, and for GMail you've got two options. First is just your IMAP Mail client (like Apple's Mail built into OS X), and second is something more "archival" in its stated purpose, like CloudPull.
