    The answer is: NO.

    The Time Capsule is only a hardware that can be used for backing up your system.
    If you have a compatible system like Mac OS 10.5.* or 10.6.* than you can use Time Machine feature to schedule automatic backups if you using a PC than you gonna need a third party backup application.

  • Of Course you can perform automatic backup using a free software:Time Machine Editor.

    It lets you decide when to perform a Backup after you have decided in time machine´s system preferences, the time capsule and the files/folders you want.

    We decided to backup every friday night and configured the Energy Saver to shutdown the computers saturday at noon.
