I have an large 4TB external hard drive hooked up to my iMac and am using it for time machine backups. I would like to have our MacAir to also access this drive for its Time Machine backups through our local network (wirelessly). Is this possible? If so, how?





iMac 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.3), 4 gigs of RAM
