  • Hi,

    Un-install the connector on Mac and re-connect it to WHS 2011 is worthy to have a try.

    Windows Home Server 2011 mainstream support has been ended (reference official declaration -> https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/windows-server-essentials-and/windows-home-server-2011-end-of-mainstream-support/ba-p/399076). 

    I can find a newest official article about WHS 2011 and Mac is Mac Mountain Lion Compatibility With WHS 2011, SBS 2011 Essentials and Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials:
    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/12832.mac-mountain-lion-compatibility-with-whs-2011-sbs-2011-essentials-and-storage-server-2008-r2-essentials.aspx

    In general, newer Mac may has compatibility issue with WHS 2011 as it is not officially supported and we would recommend you to consider of migrating your WHS to newer Windows Server Essentials or Standard version.

  • Hi Eve,

    I had already attempted a re-install which pointed to the problem with the connector software no longer able to work with MacOS 10.15 Catalina, otherwise you are saying there is no longer any support. This answers the question. I will attempt to find a open source solution rather than upgrade with Microsoft.

    Thanks for your assistance.
