Backing up My backups

Would it be possible to use a secondary time capsule to back up my primary?

  • Time Machine supports backup to more than one Time Capsule. So if the disk on one Time Capsule fails you still have the backup on another Time Capsule.

    If you have access to two different physical locations and put one Time Capsule in each, in case of fire in one location that destroys both the Time Capsule there and a macbook being backuped, you still have the Time Capsule backup in the second location, even if that backup may not be up to date.
