    I have 2TB Time Capsule and haven't set it up yet. We have 2 computers we wanted to back up. I wanted to basicly transfer all my pictures and a lot of my music on there like an external HD. I don't really want to use it to continually back up daily, like the Time Machine does. Is this possible? Thanks!

    Sure, that will work. Just be aware it will be a bit slower accessing the data over a networked drive like that. Also, with your data on the external drive like this on the same drive used for backup, your data is not really backed up anywhere.

    Follow this to move your iTunes data (music) to the external. And this for iPhoto.
