Hope this thread will benefit those who are considering to buy Time Capsule or already a have one. I’m considering to get Time Capsule for my home network which consist of: - One MBP (15" Unibody) - Two Windows XP desptops (connected via Ethernet cable) - One Windows Vista laptop Could any Mac users help answer my queries below: 1) Since I’m going to use Time Capsule as backup storage for Time Machine. Can I still manually copy files into its HDD and share those files with other network users? 2) Can all Windows PCs use Time Capsule as a external storage for storing and sharing files even after Time Machine has “marked” it as a backup storage for my MBP? 3) I presume the HDD in Time Capsule is formatted using HFS+. In this situation, do Windows users need to install special software to access the HDD in Time Capsule?
