Netgear ReadyNAS 3138 Timemachine location

Hello,
I have 4 drives, when I start Timemachine I see available space from the first drive, how do I move the location to another drive?

Do you mean 4 volumes (one per drive) - set up with FlexRAID?

 

I don't think Netgear gives you a setting to control the volume on which the TimeMachine backup is kept when you are using FlexRAID.  I believe it is always on the primary volume (the same one that holds the private "home" shares).

 

I'm not a Mac user, but you might find this guide useful:

It appears to allow you to manually create the sparse bundle on a Windows (in this case ReadyNAS) share.
