Using 2 time capsules -- one for backup and one as wireless drive for an Air

    I have a Macbook Air, with a rather small flash-based hard drive, and two Time Capsules -- one 500 GB and the other 1 TB. I am using the larger TC with Time Machine as a backup to the Air (and to another Macbook as well). And I have set up the smaller TC to act as a wireless hard drive to store material that won't fit on the Air.

    This seems to be working well enough, but so far as I can tell, the files on the smaller TC are not going to get backed up to the larger one. Is there a way to make that happen? Is there some way to tell the Time Machine on the Air to look at the external drive too when backing up?

    Time Machine won't back up data on a network drive.
