TM is brilliant. Though bear in mind that when the drive is full, it will get rid of the earliest stuff.
Thanks.

I am willing to dedicate a drive to Time Machine — just trying to figure out if it should be Time Capsule for any reason, or another Seagate (or similar).

If there are significant advantages over my old Airport (which is IEEE 802.11, no n-anything), that might persuade me. Or if it just worked better as a backup system, that might be a factor.
