    Yes. But only via a USB connection (no Firewire on TC), so your backup speeds may suffer somewhat. If you are also using Time Capsule for wireless printing, you would need to get a USB hub to have both devices connected simultaneously, and network traffic to the printer would also affect your backup speeds.

  • The answer from Zachary K was perfect as I do have a printer connected via USB to the TC. Thanks Zachary, it is rare to have the question you ask answered exactly.
