Time Capsule backing up

I back up my mac with the time capsule.  Can I back up a windows PC at the same time.  Or can i only back up all macs or all windows machines but not mix them

Re: Time Capsule backing up

You can use any mix of Windows and Mac devices. However, note that Windows comes with no Time-Machine-like software... so you'll need to get your own Windows backup client (or copy files across manually).

Re: Time Capsule backing up

Windows comes with a perfectly serviceable backup utility for making safe copies of photos/documents/music files.
I haven't played much with it in Vista, but in earlier versions its a simple process to tell it what you want to backup, and where you want it to be saved.
Tell it to save it to the time capsule, and set a schedule etc - should be straightforward.
