Mac as a NAS

I thought I would share a problem I recently came across after upgrading one of my Macs to Ventura 13.2

I use an M1 MacMini as a server that hosts my 2 Promise raids. After the OS update, the SMB share broke. (Very slow connections and hanging) The issue is related to custom icons (which I didn’t even know I had).

Anyway, for a better explanation of the problem and a fix see this article.


Wow! Thanks for sharing! One could waste lot of time trying to figure out the root cause of this issue.
