Ok so here's the story. I had this external western digital HD that i was backing up with time machine to a time capsule. The western digital fell, broke and is basically now useless. In two weeks i'm going home where i was normally backing up my WD HDD (and where the TC is located). Will i be able to restore my files -which are stored on my time capsule - to my mac? Without having to plug some other third type HDD? To make things worse. I bought a new mac which i'm planning to bring home with me, not the original one that i was backing up with TC. Will i be able to access the data on the time capsule from my new mac (which isn't backed up to the time capsule)? In case i haven't made it clear: original setup: mac1 + WD HDD -> Time capsule What i am asking to know if it's going to work (and how): mac 2 + no HDD -> Will i be able to access the files that were previously stored on the WD HDD in time capsule?
