I have been using Time Machine to back up to an External drive since 10.5. I do not keep all the files on my laptop once they are backed up...older pics, older emails, etc. will be removed.

I just bought a Time Capsule and wish to use it for my Time Machine backups.

Am I stuck with restoring data from the old drive before selecting the Time Capsule for backups to "migrate" that data, or is there a trick to doing this.
QUOTE Thanks
