    I have an iMac and use these latest time capsule for backup and as WiFi connected to my ISP modem.

    Daughter and son have a laptop and a PC, both running windows 10. Can you backup to the time capsule?

    I'm not even sure what it would backup? Just documents? Has anyone done this and give me an easy way to do it if so?

    Thanks

    Years ago (windows 7) I used genie timeline to back up to an USB 2 external drive hooked up to my airport express. Our family went all MacOS a while ago, but it might be worth a look.

    You can access the Capsule under Windows if you install the Apple Airport Utility: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1391. So you should be able to backup to a Capsule, as it will show up as a network drive.
