I recently started using Rhino on the Mac again after using the Windows version for some time. I recalled that the Mac version implemented the autosave function instead of the older backup (3dmbak) format. However, after using it for a bit I ran into the problem that this doesn’t work when working with a file on our server. When attempting to save, I receive the error: “The document “name” is on a volume that does not support permanent version storage. You will not be able to access older versions of this document once you close it.” If you click “OK” you can save the file, but that means if you crash you will lose your work and there seems to be no backup.
So first, our server is a Synology Diskstation. Is there a way to use Rhino for Mac and the Autosave function if working with files off the Synology?
Second, I found a help page that discusses Autosave and mentions a method to disable it. While disabling Autosave gets around that error and seems to offer the more familar File menu, it doesn’t seem to re-enable the older backup format (.3dmbak files). Is that correct? Is there a way to turn those on if you disable Autosave or does disabling autosave mean there is no backup file created while working in Rhino on the Mac?
