    Hey everybody, my 2TB Time Capsule is starting to get filled and I figured that I could just leave that for the laptops around the house while I backup the iMac from an external drive plugged in to it. The question is, can I move the Backup from my TC to my external drive and have Time Machine continue to backup from there or do I have to just start all over?

    Seeing how my iMac backup is sitting near 900GB, I figured I would ask before I started this multi-day transfer, just to find out it was pointless :D

    Thanks in advance!
