Does the extreme have the capabilities of an external hard drive? I have an old AirPort Time Capsule, the large flat model, and want to upgrade.

    Yes for instance if you are using a AirPort Extreme You can connect any USB external hard drive for backup. I believe you have to have a powered USB hub if you wish to use the USB port for more than one thing but I know for fact you will have no problem connecting an external USB hard drive to the current AirPort Extreme and backing up that way.
    Just so you're aware the new AirPort Time Capsule you could do so however you can also get a lot of space for a little bit of money built-in on the new time capsule 2TB or 3TB hard disks are built in as I'm sure you're aware of how the time capsule works.

    I hope this is of help,
    Tom
