I will not cover that as directions can be found all over the internet if you do not know how to do it yet. As I mentioned in the intro, though, this tutorial was really intended to inspire Cube owners to keep their beloved machines out of retirement for a little while longer.

My third fetish is the one we’ll be satisfying today In a case where the computer in the entertainment center was running over wireless, it would be much preferable to share this stuff from the Cube over a wired LAN connection. This same project could also be done with a Mac mini and a MiniStack, or even a full-blown desktop PowerMac if you do not mind the noise and additional wasted space.
The install process is quick and painless and requests a restart when it is done. Most drives ship with the jumper in Cable Select mode. It requests a password, then opens up to a small window that lets you choose a drive and click “Extend Capacity Now”.
Network Attached Storage Cube
My first fetish is saving “dead” Macs by transplanting the working parts into a useful form factor that allows it to continue serving some special purpose.
Once reported, our staff will be notified and the comment will be reviewed. Even if I’m just downloading the latest version of Cyberduck at 10MB, if I’m doing it at the coffee shop the network is clogged enough to begin with so it would be nice to offload that to my Cube which is sitting at home waiting for something to do. I have a large GB drive which is normally mounted in a FireWire case. It offers a handful of tools and I read the Info on each before installing see the View buttons in the image below.
It boots great, it mounts everytime and I ontech an unexpected surprise, its now faster! I am really tempted to stick with what Intceh know and use Carbon Copy Cloner, but I am going to give this a chance since I bought it.
I fired up Disk Utility and set the drive to 2 partitions. This will prevent possible issues when I boot from the drive after cloning.
AppleScript to the rescue! You are logged in as.
Even more useful, if you use Tiger for your NAS’s operating system, you could install MyTunesRSS and share the library in a way that allows other computers or devices to access it through the web browser. Here’s what my happy little Cube is up to most of the time. This is the cool part of using Safari as the autodownloader. Since you’ve already submitted a review for this product, this submission will be added as an update to your original review. So, I settled for the GB knowing that when the s come down in price, I can upgrade and pass the down to another machine or external case.
Final Glamour Shots My Cube in its happy home. The easiset way to do this would be to write AppleScripts to quit and open iTunes, and schedule these to run before and after the backup using Cronnix or iCal.

This is the route I chose. After formatting the partition, I do my first test copy by backing up the Intech CD. This told how to set it up with infech single GB partition for the boot volume and the remaining space all allocated to another single partition. Now that you are up to speed on the starting point, follow along with the steps that led me to NAS bliss.

Remember that I was already using this machine as a NAS, so this tutorial is not about setting up every detail from scratch, but rather taking an existing install and cloning it over to a new large drive and then taking atta of the additional size using the Intech software. Works fine on a dual G4 GB internal. I let it run overnight, so I can’t say how long it took, but when I came back to it, I found a dialog stating that the backup had completed successfully.
This year, I am on another mission to save hi-cao particular Mac from the dust bins, but this time the project is both practical and attractive. Yep, works just fine.
