    I currently have 2 MBP's and a Mac Mini all in regular use. I find myself never attaching my MBP's to an external HD often enough to back it up with Time Machine. So I was thinking of purchasing a 2TB Time Capsule to solve my problem.

    My question is, will I have to partition the Time Capsule into 3 sections to have it back up all 3 Macs with Time Machine separately? Or is there a better option.

    Thanks in advance.

    You don't need to partition the Time Capsule drive, Time Machine makes an image of each computer that backs up to it, to keep files separate.
