Next launch the Disk Utility tool, select the USB drive, and click the “Partition” tab.Change the drop down from “Current” to whatever partition scheme you want (I’m using two).From here we want to verify that we can see both of our drives listed.If not, you can use the “Create Network Folder” option and add the necessary folders. Now that we have our drives available in Ready Share, we need to connect them to the server and setup our mappings.To fix this issue, there are several options which might work: For me, a combination of the last two did the trick, but I’ve seen lots of success with the first two as well.

Now you can eject your drive and plug it into the router to finish off the process. Launch the router admin tool ( select the “Advanced” tab, expand the “USB Storage” section, and click the “Advanced Settings” link.

From Finder, select Go - Connect to Server and enter the address smb://readyshare and click “Connect”.

After connecting, select the drive your Time Machine image is on (or both in my case since I’m sharing music on my Win Backup drive) and click connect. Now you can run your Time Machine backups and leave your drive on the network.

The best documentation I’ve been able to find to date is this one. A while after I updated to Mavericks (10.9) I had to do a complete reformat of my machine.

After doing so, I wasn’t able to connect to my readyshare drives, though I could still connect to them through my Windows virtual machines.

Use Fat32 (might be listed as simply FAT in newer versions of Disk Utility) partitions for all your partitions since the router will be able to read them.
