    I've been searching for a while but did not find what I'm looking for. I wanna wirelessly backup my data (music and pic and doc folders) to an external hard drive but all I have are airport express and MBP and none-apple external drives which are connected to my router.

    I know I could use Time Machine but that way I have to buy a Time Capsule. I'm hoping if there's some software that would be able to wirelessly backup/sync my data to external drivers? any thoughts?

    thank you

    See this tutorial: http://www.naschenweng.info/2008/07/15/os-x-time-machine-backup-to-synology-ds1

    It will show you how to set up your disc as a Time Capsule and use it with Time Machine.
