When Mac users try to access Windows file servers and NAS devices, they typically suffer from poor performance, data integrity issues, slow searches, and many other disruptive problems. Acronis Files Connect solves these problems.
At its core, Acronis Files Connect is an AFP server that runs on your Windows server and enables Macs to connect to file shares and NAS via Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) instead of the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol.
- Eliminates SMB protocol bugs, performance, and compatibility problems related to locked files and file naming issues, file corruption, permissions problems, non-functional Windows shortcuts, and other issues;
- Provides much faster file share mounting, folder browsing, and file opening.
