Airport Express as Time Machine

Posted:
in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Does anybody know if you can use Airport Express (not Extreme) with Time Machine by mounting an external hard drive off it. Everywhere I read it only says it can be done with Airport Extreme. And that the usb port on the Express is for a printer only.



Any help would be appreciated

    My old "G" model Express will NOT accept HDD on it's USB port... I suppose the new "N" model could be different, but apple.com doesn't mention anything about using a HDD with it.

    Yes, the Extreme DOES allow a USB hdd, and you can use it with Time Machine.
