    Are you using a mac that is Time Machine capable? If yes, then absolutely.

    I have an airport extreme with a 1 TB iomega external HDD connected via USB.

    First step I had to take is to mount the iomega drive in Finder (I basically selected it from the left nav window so that I could see contents of the drive). Next, go in to Time Machine preferences, click the 'select disk' button and choose the HDD that is attached to Airport Express.

    Time Machine will do the rest.

    Cheers!
