    Hello.
    I have an external HD (350G with 290G used) plugged into the back of a new T/Capsule. I have a new MBP with no data on its HD and my daughter has a new MPB with no data on its HD. Is it poss to always save to the external HD wirelessly and have the TC back up that HD.
    Also, all my itunes music and films are on the ext HD. Can my daughter and I play, buy content to/from it without it saving to our respective HD's.

    1) So you want the TC to backup your external? I don't think youd be able to do it vi time machine, but you could always just copy the data over to the TC whenever you want.

    2) Both of your computers will be able to stream content off of the external at the same time. And as I'm sure you know, you can get a USB hub plugged into the TC and have the printer and external hdd connected at the same time.

    Yes - Point 1 is what interests me along with sharing itunes content from external too.
