Hi All

 

I am using Mountain Lion version and i am receiving The document is on a volume that does not support permanent version storage when trying to save a text file on to my QNAP ( Netwrok Storage).

 

I have done littel research and aparently this is to do with MAC OS, how ever i was wondering if anyone know any ways around this ? or will this be fixed  ?

 

Thanks in adavance.

    So this network storage device you have is somehow Apple's problem?

     

    Some devices not made by Apple don't support Versions.  Deal with it.

    No, the this is a testthis is test 2

     

    Problem is because of the difference beween Windows linefeeds and UNIX linefeeds.  This is an age old problem and has nothing to do with permanent version storage.  If you intend on editing the same text file from Windows and OS X you need to use the editors on the respective platforms that understand carriage return versus line feed.  It's an age old problem - just google for UNIX windows line feeds and see.  You may need to use something other than Notepad or TextEdit on one of the platforms; I'm sure BBEdit on the Mac would do well.

    AHA, i might take a look..

     

    weird that i did not notice that before i could of swarn it worked before 10.8.

     

    You probably are right becouse i just did the test with Mac Office and it seems like it works fine, but does not work with textedit and notepad.

     

    cheers for your help.
