Time Machine backup to a sparsebundle.
The sparsebundle will use the share name of computer. So, it should be obvious who is your Macbook and that is your Macpro.
Open the sparsebundle in Finder and keep open the subfolders until you get to the backup of each separate hard drive...
You has of course set the exclusion in Time Machine?
By default, Time Machine will exclude your second drive unless you have included it. Did you?
Once you get to this level during the backup, you can do a full restore manually whenever you want.

I create albums for various subsets of my photos and I would like to see what those who are associated with what albums. And those who may be associated with several albums. And who is not associated with albums.
You can find photos that aren't in any album by creating a smart album with the rule 'Album isn't everything. "
But the Photos is not a tool to reveal the photo albums is in. If you want to be able to find the albums, smart albums based on key words to use. For example, instead to drag your photos of birds at a standard album "Birds", assigning the 'Bird' keyword and create a smart album "Keyword is the bird". So looking at the keywords to a photo, albums, you'll see in.

I think I know how to uninstall programs; However, how can you say that programs are essential to the functioning of my laptop and who are just garbage programs or programs that I rarely use. Some are obvious (such as games and other), but there is so much and I'm not computer savvy. Help, please. Give me a list for computer idiots or something. Thanx.

And I would check to see if it has damaged system files.
Each method/step below progresses to another if the first does not all corrupted files which are, etc..
«Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files»
And these eightforums.com tutorials are very detailed for the problems resulting from Scan SFC:
"How to run the command" SFC/scannow"at the start or in Windows 8 and 8.1" . "
Read it in conjunction with the rest of the information they give link above.
If SFC could not fix something, then run the new command to see if it can be able to next time. Sometimes, it can take by running the sfc/scannow command 3 times restart the PC after each time completely fix everything what he is capable of.
If this isn't the case, then run Dism/online/Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth to repair any corruption component store, restart the PC later and try the sfc/scannow command.
If still no, then try using ONE OPTION above to run the command sfc/scannow at the start
If still no, then you could do a Refresh of Windows 8, or run a System Restore using a restore point dated before the wrong file occurred to fix. You may need to repeat doing a restore of the system until you find a restore point that is older that may work.
If not yet, then you can use the steps in the TIP box in the section THREE OPTION to manually replace the files SFC could not fix.
"How to update windows 8 and 8.1" . "
Refresh your PC goes like this:
- The PC starts in Windows RE (Recovery Eenvironment).
- Windows RE scans the hard drive for your data, settings, and applications and puts them aside (on the same drive).
- Windows RE installs a new copy of Windows.
- Windows RE restores the data, settings, and applications, which it set aside in the newly installed copy of Windows.
- The PC reboots into the newly installed copy of Windows.
"How to reset Windows 8 and Windows 8.1" . "
"When you reboot your PC, the drive will be completely reset and all your applications and your files will be removed it." Windows 8 will be reinstalled, and you need to change any settings, and then reinstall all the apps you want to come back after the reset. If you know if all the files you don't want to lose, then you must back up these files before you start resetting.
See you soon.
Original title: find firewalls
How can I find what firewall is running on my computer? I have used norton, mcafree, avg in the past. All have been removed through programs removal program. I turned off my windows firewall and Security Center says I still have firewalls. I can't access itunes store or download programs (such as the overdrive media). I don't have a router, but have tried that disconnect and connect the computer directly to the modem. Still have the problem.
Security applications - especially those of McAfee and Norton - cannot be completely removed using the control panel > Add / Remove programs.
For McAfee, see http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?lc=1033&id=TS100507 which explains how to use the McAfee Consumer Products Removal (that you can get the link in this article).
For AVG, see http://www.avg.com/us-en/utilities
If for some reason you want to reinstall everything before (that I do not recommend), don't forget to make a record of your license key before uninstalling. The links above should explain how to do this.
Some motherboards with nVidia chipsets include a hardware firewall (nVidia ActiveArmor). I'm not positive on how to determine if you have this or not, but I suggest starting with a glance at the "network adapter" section of the Device Manager (start > run > devmgmt.msc > OK).
PS: even if you're experienced, do not use your router. It provides a layer of protection between you and the Internet, if you connect with all firewalls disabled.
