Will my Mac automatically discover and disconnect from a Time Capsule as I arrive and leave from my apartment, and handle interrupted backups?

I'm hoping that the Time Capsule is a flexible backup option that doesn't require me to mount / unmount it as a drive every time I take my laptop on or off my home network. Does it work this way, or does it mount as a network drive which has to unmounted before you can depart? I'm hoping that automatic backups can be interrupted and retried the next time my computer connects to the capsule.

  • Unless you want to view the files on the time capsule it backs up automatically you don't have to mount/unmount the drive (on a mac). I don't know about interrupting the backup and if that could affect the files or not. It should be OK I think. There are also programs that allow you to start it backing up say at 2AM so it will be done before you leave in the morning
