Welcome to the Forum.
Not sure about backing TC to Ext HD but i use 2 HDs and keep one 'off site' and rotate them regularly which covers Fire or Theft. Check these out;

Thanks mate, I was doing that before with superduper but needed to up capacity so bought 2 TB TC. I need a way to smart update the TC to External. I have tried a way using disk images (tiny in size for test) but wated to know if there was any pitfalls?

But if you are doing regular SuperDuper Bootable back ups and have TM doing backups to an Ext HD why do u need to make copies of the Time Machine Sparsebundle, which in itself, is a sort of incremental back up.

Ah I see now.... I am not using the TC with Time Machine (well I may use it one sparse bundle in future enough to back up main drive docs) I am using the TC to hold all my videos and projects for Final Cut Pro etc so i can stream to MBP or Apple TV. I would then copy a project across if I needed to edit again. So as things change on the TC I just want to hold a complete, off site, back up. So one every 2 days I would like to do a smart up date style back up....

Have I made any sense there. Like these forums buy the way. Really appreciate you assistance.

Never done it, but if you can mount the TC HD on the desktop then i guess you can use superduper to do smart backups to a Ext HD
