Do I need to buy the time capsule to use time machine? I have a macPro quad xeon 3.0 w/ 3GB ram. I am filling my three extra HD bays with (2) 500 GB seagate and maybe 1 750GB Or 1Terabyte HD. Could I use one of the for time machine?
Thanks In advance.

Also, I am thinking of replacing my current 250 GB hard drive that came stock, with either another 250 or a 500GB HD. How would I go about transfering all my info from one to the other. Also what internal hard drives to you folk recomend? What is the difference between a 7200 Rpm with 32mb VS. a 7200 Rpm with 16mb?

Thanks again

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Time Machine will work with any secondary disks or external hard drives, you aren't required to buy Time Capsule to use it.
