Add support for MAX OS X Extended hard drives so we can back up our macs using Time Machine

Time Machine requires a Mac OS X Extended formatted hard drive but Lima only supports HFS+, NTFS, and Ext4.

Please add support for Mac formatted hard drives so we can do time machine backups through Lima!!

Mac OS X Extended format is a synonym for HFS+ (Journaled); has anyone actually tested Time Machine on Lima? Lima's own support document (https://support.meetlima.com/articles/203748115-My-drive-format-is-unknown) details out selecting Mac OS X Extended for the format.

I've tested it, but no succes :-( The Lima drive doesn't appear to be selected in the time machine option to choice this as a backup drive for TM. Even if it's HFS+ formatted.

Hi Pascal, thanx, this seems to work ;-).

[edit] After day use unfortunately not the best solution, remounting and a error during backup (seems like network lost) the disk isn't recognized, but accessible through Finder. After activation it picks up again. So no 100% solution.
