Can AirPort Capsule be used as an external wireless hard drive separate to Time Machine?

Can AirPort Capsule be used as an external wireless hard drive separate to Time Machine? Meaning, can I save content directly to the Capsule, or does it only backup what is saved on my Mac device?

I am wanting to back up my computer via Time Machine, but there are things I would like to put onto a hard drive (hopefully Airport Capsule) but not leave on my computer.

Hope this makes sense

Thanks

    Yes your Time Uapsule will function as a backup drive with time machine as well as being able to save content directly to the same drive , However, you cannot include the stored information on the TC HD as part of your computer backup through time machine on your Mac.

    hope this helps
