  • Windows does not support some characters that Mac OS and the TeraStation allow. So, if you create a filename on a Mac with any of the following characters, it will not display correctly on a Windows computer. With Mac OS X 10.2 or later, you may have to connect to the TeraStation via AFP in order to display or copy any of the following characters:
    ? [ ] / ¥ = + < > ; : ” , | *
  • When using multi-byte characters (such as Japanese, Chinese, and Korean), make folder and file names with 80 bytes or less. Total path length is limited to 1024 bytes. You may not be able to copy a folder or file whose name is more than 80 bytes characters long, or whose pathname is more than 1024 bytes total.
