    You need to be more specific in the question.

    I guess you mean what's the name of Apple's wireless BACKUP solution... and that would be Time Capsule.

    No, there is no alternative for Windows unless TC can work with PCs as well, then you could just get some third party software to handle the backups and send the info to the TC drive.

    The specifications for it on Apple's online store says Time Capsule should be able to work with Windows PC's. You just won't have Time Machine.

    Scroll down and it says something about the requirements for use on a PC. Pretty basic stuff.
