    I have a Time Capsule and I want to use only as external hard drive. Is this possible? Anything special I need to do?

    I don't believe so. It should be set to a shared drive by default during the setup. Just mount it and use it as you would any networked volume. (It would need to be shared anyway to work with Time Machine.)

    You can use it as generic storage, but networked only.
