no need to duplicate what's already in Time Capsule

It is not backed up unless you have two copies of it on different devices.

Did he claim it was backed up?

Ah, I understand your point (took me a bit to understand what you were giving me a hard time about... )

I was assuming that because it was on a TC it was being considered a backup. So I was making the point that having one copy on Time Capsule and no where else is not a backup. Backups are copies of your data so if one copy is lost, another is available. If the data is stored only on his TC and his TC dies, then the copies of the movies are lost (if they exist no where else and cannot be downloaded or ripped again.)

This is a concept that I find many users do not quite grock so I try to make them think about it and understand their risks.

Just a non OSX specific tip.
