comment Synology NAS offer both AFP and SMB2, Mavericks always choose AFP
You'll need to. The sidebar shows auto-detected AFP shares. Just add it as a login item if you want it mounted for you, or have a look at automounts

This is correct. If you specify smb:// then the Finder will connect via Samba

comment Why doesn't my Mac Pro see my new 4TB SATA drive?
There should be a delete link underneath it, above these comments. If not, you can click "flag" above and choose "other" and explain that you want this deleted because you merged it with the other answer.

Welcome to Stack Exchange Paul! This should be an edit to your earlier answer, not an entirely new answer. Use the edit link on your other answer to add the relevant info to that answer, then delete this one.

Thanks. Were you able to format the drive? If so that's a different issue than mine possibly because the drive didn't even show for me in Disk Utility nor ASP.

comment Why doesn't my Mac Pro see my new 4TB SATA drive?
Thanks bmike! It must be a hardware issue because the OS X installer, The VMware ESXi installer and VMware ESXi 5.5 all can't see the drive. I'm guessing it's a SATA 3 speed auto-negotiation issue but can't confirm that.

comment Why doesn't my Mac Pro see my new 4TB SATA drive?
@IanC. No, the Mac Pro has drive sleds and built-in SATA. There's no SATA cables attached to the drive itself. Also, I was upgrading a 1TB drive which works so I know that port is good, plus I tried all 4 bays.

comment How do I change the location of screen captures on 10.5?
This is great info, but should be asked as a new question (How can I change the name of a screen capture file) and then copy your answer to that. It's perfectly Ok (and encouraged!) to ask and answer your own question in order to share knowledge. Post a comment on my question with a link to your question after you post it and I'll upvote you.
