    All-

    I recently purchased a rMBP and am switching from a PC that I've had for about the last 8 years. I have a plethora of hard drives from my PC days, 1.5TB external USB, internal 500GB drive and a couple of other random internals.

    My rMBP only has 256GB of internal storage so I bought a 2TB TimeCapsule to act as my backup/external storage base. I would also like to somehow add my existing hard drives to the network. I know I can plug my current 1.5TB external drive into the TimeCapsule's USB port, but what can I do to my other drives to make them available on the network?

    I was thinking of buying some external enclosures, but the TimeCapsule only has 1 USB port. Any thoughts?

    Thanks for the help!

    Usb hub? Don't know it will work with several drives though. :)

    This is a guess but I bet a powered USB hub or a USB hub with powered external drives will connect them all. You could also look into a Drobo enclosure to house them all and combine into one logical redundant disk.
