    There were A LOT of rumors at the beginning of the year about a new Time Capsule coming out. Anyone hear anything new about this? I need to upgrade my wifi (still using an Airport Extreme purchased around '04-'05) and I can't tell if it's safe to purchase one now or is this the time to hold and wait for the new one right around the corner.:confused:

    I also need to expand my hard drive space.

    I have an iMac (2010 Model) ATV, and an old Airport Extreme. I REALLY do not want to purchase new external HD's due to I would rather have Thunderbolt or USB3. It would be awesome if they added Thunderbolt to the TC, am I dreaming here??? Any other thoughts on expansion.:confused:

    Anybody have any good experiences with Cloud based expansion ideas??:confused:

    Go get the Tome Capsule 2TB for $299.00. Stay with the 7.6.1 firmware. Add additional external hard drives as you require more space.

    I have a 3TB plugged in to my TC via USB. Then I back up to both drives. This adds a extra layer of back up protection incase the TC hard drive goes bad.

    Does this break beyond 7.6.1? Mine are at 7.6.3.

    Redundant backups are good. It is even better to use a 2nd backup program... to provide redundancy against programmatic (or human) errors. Offsite cloud backup is even better as the 2nd backup.

    Still.... after already doing Time Machine + Crashplan+ cloud backup... having a redundant HDD for my TM backups would be nice.

    The issue that apple will not discuss is with 7.6.3 There is no 7.6.2 because it was out for a day and they pulled it.

    7.6.1 works great.
