How do I use another external hard drive (Seagate Free Agent) to automatically back up my Time Capsule? Thanks.

backing up TC

Thanks. I looked but there was no Seagate; only choice was open another TC. I have the Seagate linked with the TC by a usb cable. Should I connect the Seagate to the MacBook Pro? That would really limit the ports I have since I have the TC hardwired to the M. And all I want to do it back up my Lightroom 3 photos from the TC to the Seagate so it would seem I don't have to link it to the computer. Thoughts? Thanks.

When you go to Finder is the drive listed under shared if so double click it then it should re-alias then go back and look to see if a second drive is available in Time Machine under select disk.
