    Quick question lads, I use my Time Capsule to back up my MBP and PC (sorry!). It works will for the MBP but does not for PC. It takes way too long over Ethernet for some reason.

    My question is, can I back up the pc by connecting the time capsule via USB with something like this

    Thanks

    Mick

    and that's interesting, ethernet "should" be faster than USB.

    No, it will not work. The USB port on the Time Capsule is only for connecting hard drives, printers, and USB hubs with a combination of hard drives and printers attached. Unfortunately, you're limited to Ethernet as the fastest connection to the TC's hard drive.
