  • Not via USB. What you can do is connect it wirelessly and store files on it similarly to an external hard drive.

  • The Time Capsule can be accessed more quickly and securely via Ethernet LAN direct connection which will provide much faster speeds. The Time Capsule HDD will provide 25-30MBps speed average, and slower for very small files. Deleting from the Time Capsule takes an inordinate amount of time if you have backed up thousands of very small files. Good for when you're in a fix for space, but use it most successfully as a Time Machine backup.
