Can you set up the Time Capsule from the very beginning to only back up some files? not the whole hard drive?

  • The Time Capsule is simply "available" for backup by Time Machine running on individual Macs. So the answer is No and Yes, No your can't tell the Time Capsule to do anything about specific data on Individual Macs. Yes you can use the Options Exclude pane in the Time Machine Control Panel on each Mac to selectively remove files from backup.
