    When you have a USB external HDD hooked up to the USB port, can you access that drive anywhere that has an internet connection. If I'm at school and theres a file I need thats at home, can I sign into that HDD and retrieve the file?

    Thanks

    The option in Airport Utility is "Share disks over the Ethernet WAN port".

    Yup - you can share it externally.

    Go to "Go --> Connect to Server" or press CMD+K when on Finder.
