Transfer files to time capsule?

Does anyone knows how to transfer music files from a MacBook Pro to the Apple Time Capsule? I need to clear up some space on my computer hard drive and can't seem to do it.

Transfer files to time capsule?

Drag and drop in a Finder window. After you copy the files, drag the originals to the trash and empty the trash. You need to partition the Time Capsule to allow one volume for use with Time Machine and the other for stuff like this. Otherwise, the backup will not match. Get it? The same files will sync between the internal HDD and the backup. Sync means the same files, no extra, no less. Over some length of time, deleted files are ignored. That is not your goal, is it?

Use Time Machine for keeping a copy of the daily condition of the internal HDD. Use a different drive or a different partition on the same drive for an archive (long-term backup of files that may or may not also be on the internal HDD).
