    Hi guys. Does anyone know if it is possible to have two different Time Machine Backups for one computer? For example, one at work and one at home? I've seen some comments with google, but nothing official and nothing thoroughly verified. Does anyone here have any experience with such a setup? Thanks!

    Yes, you can have two different backups. Just go into the Time Machine preference pane and select Change Disk when you want to switch from one to the other.

    I just got a Time Capsule, but I still have ext hard drive I used for Time Machine previously. I still take a second backup on it now and then since I don't need the storage otherwise for now.
