Can I add a 720 GIG USB External to my 1TB Time Capsule and use the 720 USB externial as a File Server .

Right now I want the entire 1TB to be used for Time Machine Backups for both laptops and I would like to use the 720 external I have as a place to store files. Like a file server or something.

Is this possible

I do see the TC inside my finder. When I click on it it will also then show the 720 gig USB attached to it?

Also will my backups only go to the 1TB TC I DO NOT NEED them going to the 720 USB external as well

cool. Thanks and I appreciate the detail explanation.

I don't use the TC as a router because of it's limited functions. I operate the TC in bridge mode along with a linksys device.

Now I am thinking about putting this 720 pocket drive on that USB port in the back. I had used the drive form my time machine before I got the time cap.

thanks
love the details
