    Upgrading the HDD in Time Capsule
    My HDD in the time capsule is only 500 meg and is now full.

    I have seen many articles that you can put in a bigger HDD,

    1) has anyone on this site done it
    2) Do I need to format the drive before installing.
    3) do I need to update any software to "tell" the time capsule it has a bigger drive or will this occur automatically.
    4) Whats the biggest drive I can install


    Thanks

    I have taken out a time capsule disk to recover my data after it died - following this article - but I put it into a drive cage - not another time capsule.

    Brilliant article, thanks I am purchasing a cheap 2TG seagate drive to put into the time capsule. You have saved me quite a bit of money.

    Thanks Ivan
