    So I now have my shiny new TC all set up, and all three Macs back up to it happily.

    In the day's of my NAS backup solution, I could double click the drive and check the files in the backup folder.

    I know I can do this with TM, but is there a way to check that my TC has correctly designated the backups and view the files...Without connecting it via ethernet to my iMac or MBP?

    It's currently connected to my Draytek, so I have 2 wifi networks running, the TC for my iPad and iPhone, taking advantage of the 5hz band.

    Should Also Have Said

    Is there an appreciable difference in using the higher band with ATV? At the moment it's hard wired, logic say's leave it that way.

    I Can't Seem To Find

    A way of doing this, I guess it's TM or nothing. That's a little lame to me, as I like to see what's going on. All I get is "Status Normal" I guess I will get used to it.

    For now I'm still running NAS backups for safety...Paranoid? Yep:D

    Not Sure This Is

    A good idea, but if I double click the TC icon WHILE it's backing up, I can see the files.

    Unless anyone else Knows a better way, I will do this from time to time to check.
