Time Machine is a generally quick and convenient way to back up your data and has come a long way in terms of reliability since its inception in But what if a Time Capsule isn't big enough? For best compatibility, your Mac will need to be able to run macOS Sierra comfortably. These machines and newer will be able to run macOS Sierra and the latest Server app. If the Mac you have in mind for this task cannot run Sierra, you can use an even older machine with El Capitan
Setting up Time Capsule for the first time
How can I access a Time Capsule on my Windows 7 laptop?
My reason for wanting this is: 1. I want to utilize my core for Apple Time Machine backup. My thought is to cable as such In theory this should work as far as I am aware but I am unable to get Core to play nice with the Time Capsule. I guess in general the app seems to be directed to the person that is not at all technically savvy, there should be an 'expert mode' or something else for those that have some knowledge about these things or god forbid when you are asked by someone say from Apple to provide something that a router should give you Anywho, apologies for the rant as it was not intended to be such.

Time Machine is an easy Mac backup solution built into Mac OS X that allows for automated continual backups of files, apps, and the operating system itself. Not only does Time Machine make it incredibly easy to maintain frequent automatic backups of a Mac, it also makes it equally simple to restore from a backup in the event something goes wrong, whether you need to restore files, or even if you need to restore the entire Mac OS X installation. Because backing up is an essential part of general Mac system maintenance, you should always have a backup solution active. For example, if you have a GB internal drive, a 5TB external drive for Time Machine would allow for many complete backups of that Mac drive from different time points, which is when Time Machine backups work best this allows you to roll back the entire Mac to different points in time, hence the name of the software feature.
