Backing up Time Capsule to ext. drive connected via Time Capsule

Hi there,
I've read some threads on this topic (and consulted the "Backing up over a Network" in User's Guide and "Airport Disks" on blog), but I'm still having trouble figuring out how to make this work. Note that I use SD for my regular computer backup every week perfectly, so I do have some experience with SD.

Here's the deal: I have my music and photos along with some other "old" files stored on my Time Capsule (which I'm connected to wirelessly) and I'm trying to make a backup of those (just selected folders on the Time Capsule, not my Time Machine backups because I'm already doing that with Super Duper on yet another drive). I purchased a big external hard drive and have it attached to the Time Capsule via the USB hub and am ready to go, but I can't figure out how to get from A to B. When you say in the user's guide "mount the network volume, and then choose Disk Image… from the destination pop-up." I'm not sure how to choose a disk image once I'm connected to the Time Capsule. (Sorry to be so tech-unfriendly). Do I need to make 2 disk images--one for my Time Capsule and one for my new hard drive? And further, do I have to make disk images of each folder I want to copy? Again, sorry about my density on this. Look so forward to getting guidance. Thanks!

You can't do this with SuperDuper: we cannot back up directly to or from a network drive.

aw shucks!

Dave,
Thanks for the speedy reply. Do you have any ideas for me how to do what I'm trying to do save for a direct copy every week (of 300gigs!)?

There are probably other applications out there that will do it...

just checking

The title of this thread sounded like the exact right one for me, but turns out it isn't. Just want to check on something, if that's all right. I have an external HD connected to my Time Capsule. I would like to back up my Time Machine backups (from two macs) from the TC to the external HD. I read the users guide about backing up over network, and this thread, and I'm a little confused, but it LOOKS like I cannot do what I want to do wirelessly (backing up and smart updating the TM backups from the TC to the external HD). Right? If so, how about if I connect the HD and the TC to my laptop? Thanks in advance for trying to make sense of my post!

You can't, really. You could try to open the sparse bundle that Time Machine is storing on your Time Capsule and copy that locally, but I don't think it'll work as expected.
