    I have purchased Time Capsule, and have now begun backing up my computer, but I have two accounts. It says everything will be backed up on my computer, so I assumed that means both accounts. If I switch accounts, will Time Machine continue to back up my computer, or can I only back up from the account that initially started it? Thankyou in advance for answering.

    Time Machine will backup as many user accts.

    Then you need to figure out currently, if you got enough backup storage.

    Double the internal harddrive space for time machine, to allow some growth with Time Machine.

    The bigger Time Machine storage unit, the longer time period looking back you have..

    Also helps if you exclude folders that change often from backup to extend the time period. for me thats the desktop and downloads.

    I don't really understand what you just said. Does that mean that I have to back up the accounts seperately?
