Need to confirm if the afp support has been removed from the latest version.

I have been using unraid as my time machine backup and it is one of the reason I bought this product. While checking the release note I noticed that AFP support has been removed. 


Request you to please add the support back if possible.

Very unlikely to happen as Apple itself has dropped AFP from the latest Mac OS Big Sur. You should be able to set up Time Machine to point to an SMB share.

This is still needed for time machine on macs running older operating systems!


I have a couple old macs in the house that work best over AFP (OS 9 / early OS 10)

To be honest. I used to use Time Machine with unraid and then decided it didn't make sense overall for me. When my iMac 2011-2012 model had an issue it was looking for a USB drive of sorts and I couldn't get it to connect to the network to do a rebuild. Not blaming unraid because maybe I did it wrong when I was trying to restore and just opted for a fresh restore. 


So now I just use a USB drive and backup now and then and shelf the drive.
