    Hi guys

    Let's say you're in college living in shared room and your setup is: MacBook Air + WiFi Time Capsule (Time Machine + Data). As far as Wireless concerned there are no problems, but if somebody tries to connect to my TC via USB? How can I protect it? :confused:
    I'd like to be confident about living it all alone.

    As far as I am aware, it is not possible to connect a computer to a time capsule via usb. The usb port can be connected to external drives and printers only. They could connect to it via network though using an ethernet cable. I've no idea how to stop someone doing that other than preventing them from physically getting to the time capsule box.

    Edit. Never mind. If you're worried about access to the ethernet ports, put it in a box and lock the box.

    Thanks for your replies.

    I was hoping for some kind of encryption (like File Vault, but as far as I know TM doesn't work with it quite well). I can't take TC with me every time I leave. :eek:
