    I'm wondering if it is possible to set up auto backup that includes an external hard drive. I kep a lot of data on an external, and back up manually periodically, but want to have an automated process to do so. I'm not sure if Time Capsule or ClickFree or Maxtor could be set up to handle that.

    Thanks,

    Time Machine, CarbonCopyCloner (CCC) and SuperDuper can do what you want.

    It is possible so long as the external drive format is 'correct'.
