Can I use this product as an external drive connected to our Airport Extreme (actually it's a time capsule) for time Machine backups?

I have a time capsule that I'm afraid will die soon and I plan to eventually upgrade to the new airport extreme. I want to wirelessly back up to this drive (through the airport) and have redundancy for my back up so we don't lose things.

  • Yes. This is a great product (I got it in the first fw version and it failed, but they replaced it fully and it's working great). Just make sure your Extreme is 802.11ac, because accessing big files is kind of slow on a 802.11n network. I access/edit huge 30MB photos, so I only use the fw800 cable since it's faster.
