I am selling my Time Capsule. I would like to back up its contents so that when I get a new one later, I can restore its contents back. There is a documented way to backup and restore to a new time capsule if you have both the old and new devices available.

How can I backup the contents to a hard drive so that I can restore it later to a new Time Capsule? Can I just copy the contents?

  1. Install the replacement back up device first.
  2. Let the replacement drive finish at least one complete back up.
  3. Secure shred the data on the old one.
