  • Yes.

    I have a Lacie external drive connected to my imac via usb. I have an older 2TB Time Capsule. When I first did it I connected the imac to the Time Capsule with an ethernet cable and it backed up both the imac and the Lacie. I believe it worked automatically after I plugged in the Lacie. It now does incremental backups of both the iMac and the Lacie via wi-fi.
