    Why not just plug a USB external drive into your AEBS and use it as your backup for time machine? I don't understand why or what hacks you'd need to do this.

    If I recall correctly, you can only hook up an AirPort Express to a printer and not either a printer or hard disk. If you have an AirPort Extreme base station that allows you to hook a hard drive up to it, then you can use it with Time Machine. Hope that helps.

    I am wondering about the same thing.

    Are there really no hacks out there? :confused:
