Can Time Machine backup a hard disk that is connected to the Time Capsule itself?

    The title is self explanatory but just in case, I have a MacbookAir and I just purchased an Airport Extreme+TC. This device has an USB port that can be used to plug an external HDD and share it across the network.
    Is there any way to back this up automatically? (I'm assuming with the intervention of my Mac, since there is no backup software in the time capsule).

    Time Machine won't do it, but you can use something like Carbon Copy Cloner to do it.
