I already use a USB external HD. Can I back up certain folders from that HD with Time capsule, without having to keep the files on my Mac?

By this I mean I use the External USB HD to save work files. Can I back up these files from the HD with a Time Capsule by connecting the HD to the TC or my Mac, without having to save the files on my mac but just leave them on the HD (That way, if the HD dies, I have the back-up on the TC with all my work files) ?
