Can AirPort Extreme back up a USB attached disk (storage) to a second USB attached disk (backup) using Time Machine?

I'm running Mavericks Server on a MacBook Pro and an older AirPort Extreme. Before purchasing the latest AirPort (for the purpose of networked backups) I want to confirm this is possible.

    Yes. I do exactly what you're describing. I have my iTunes library stored on a separate drive attached via USB, and Time Machine backs all of it up without you having to tell it to (meaning that's the default condition; you actually have to go into Settings and tell Time Machine *not to* back up attached drives). So you're good to go.
