Answer to: How do I upgrade my Time Capsule's hard drive?You have to be slightly careful with the WD Caviar Green drives, sometimes the firmware on them isn't compatible with the Time Capsules and so they don't spin down during idle time. They may have solved this problem now, but it was a problem with the older smaller capacity drives. That's why I ended up with a Samsung EcoGreen. Would be interested in finding out how you get on with your 3TB WD drive! http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.p...
Answer to: How do I upgrade my Time Capsule's hard drive?Man, I wish I'd known that I would have to copy the files off before removing the hard drive. Who'd have thought that the drive wouldn't be readable connected to another device! Problem with the "just copy files onto your internal hard drive" is that when you have Time Machine backup files for several machines, it's very likely you won't have a hard drive big enough to copy the files onto... Catch-22! So I've just started backups from scratch... Once it's done successfully then I'll wipe the old drive and use it for something else.
