Can the time capsule work as JUST an external hard drive that i can move files to for storage?

I don't want it to continuously backup my computer. is there a way i can turn that function off and just use it like a normal external hard drives for extra storage space?

    Yes. The Time Machine back-up function software is not necessary to use a Time Capsule - it can be used as an external hard drive. Many users are doing just that.

  • Of course you can!
    Time Capsule is just an external hard disk.
