change timemachine disk

Hey there,

So currently i have been using a external USB hard drive for my time machine backup, i now have bought a time capsule. Given I already have a lot of history in the timemachine on the external HD is it possible to copy this data to the time capsule rather than starting off with a new complete backup of my HD ?

if you understand what i mean ?

thx

The last few entries in a MacRumors Forum explain how to do it using your Airport Utility. Google is Your Friend!
