Hi,

 

I have a 27" imac running mountain lion and 1TB Time Capsule that I backup to.  I want to take periodic backups of my Time Capsule to ensure an extra level of backup

 

I seem to remember seeing an option under the Airport Utility for backing up a Time Capsule to another HDD from USB but I can't find it now.

 

Any ideas on how to do this or has this feature been removed?

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

Mark

    The old archive feature was removed.. Apple decided you no longer need it.

     

    But TM in the Mountain Lion can backup to two different locations.. you can use a USB disk plugged occasionally into the computer and backup to that. (This was always possible by changing target for backup but ML has automated it somewhat).

     

    Or you can manually copy the sparsebundle..

     

    See Q18  http://pondini.org/TM/FAQ.html
