sharing pool


Mar 28, 2021
Hi. I know little about the world of FreeNAS and I need help in configuring my server. I use version 11.3-U4.1. I have a POOL with about 7GB free (3xSeagete 4TB), which will grow. I intend to use 3TB for the backup of my Time Machine and what is left for other things. I created a specific Time Machine user, set up AFP sharing, and apparently I'm ready to start backup via Time Machine and FreeNAS. However, I don't know how I'm going to use the remaining area. Do I create another user and connect with him? If so, how do I set the remaining quota? Any other suggestions? Thanks.
