Can you use Time Capsule on a windows and 2 macs at the same time.

Can you use Time Capsule on a windows and 2 macs at the same time as either a backup for one and a seperate HD drive for two?

From one viewpoint the Time Capsule is just NAS (Networked Attached Storage) and it supports the file sharing protocols necessary for both Windows and Macs.
From the viewpoint of the Macs it can also be used by Time Machine for backups.
As NAS it can be used for storing files, and there are many backup software packages that support NAS on both Windows and Macs.
In addition from a networking point of view it can serve as a router, wireless access point etc.

  • Can I use HP Pro 8600 with usb and wireless at the same time

    Can I use HP Pro 8600 with usb and wireless at the same time?  Sometimes I cannot get the wireless to work, it seems to be my laptop.  It would be nice if I could use the usb, but it doesn't work.  What should / can I do, if anything?

    Same physical printer but when connecting to SAME computer using both USB and wireless it becomes two (logical) printers. Probably your default prnter is the wireless one, you have to select the right printer before print .

  • Using iPod both in Windows and Mac at the same Time?

    I was wondering if it was possible to use my brand new ipod both in Mac as in Windows without having to format or restore it every time?
    The idea is to use "manually manage songs" on both Operating Systems.
    Thanks for your help!

    iPods come formatted Windows and will work on Macs and Windows. Unless you Restore it in a Mac, it will stay formatted Windows.
    If it doesn't work, put the iPod on Disk Mode and iTunes should recognize in both systems.
    If it is formatted Mac, it will not be useable on Windows, even in Disk Mode.

  • How can I delete photos from my iPad, iPhone, and laptop at the same time?

    How can I delete photos from my iPad, iPhone, and laptop at the same time so I don't have to do it separately on each device?

    Photos that were synced from your computer using iTunes can only be deleted by de-selecting them from the folder from where they were synced -  and then re-syncing.
    Connect the iPad to the PC and launch iTunes.
    Click on the iPad name on the left side under devices.
    Click on the Photos Tab on the right.
    If you want to remove all of the Photos - uncheck the Sync Photos from Heading
    Click on Apply in the lower right corner of iTunes
    If you are using iTunes 11 - this will be helpful, Setting up syncing in Windows.

  • Use one external harddrive on both pc and mac at the same time

    i bought an iomega external harddrive today
    can i use it on both mac and pc at the same times?
    for ex:
    when i plug in both computer
    i could able to read and write on the hdd on both computer
    since i format it into 4 partitions (2 journal and 2 doc)
    so i wish i can use them separately in 2 computers

    Hi Jerry_L and welocme to Discussions,
    using such USB or Firewire connected external harddrives with two computers at the same time is usually not recommended by the manufacturer.
    Doing so might lead to data-loss and the like.
    Check with the manual of that harddisk to verify.
    Using it with one computer at a time with your partitioning should be doable.

  • Can I use both newly cloned MBPR retina and old-MBP with same Time Machine

    When my new-MBPR retina cloned from the old-MBP back up in Time Machine via migration assistance, will this newly-cloned MBPR continue thereon backing up with the same old-MBP back up in Time Machine? I.e. continuing same timeline?
    And what happen to my old-MBP back up, if I continuing to use my old-MBP with the same Time Machine on? Will TM recognised 2 different MBP and thus creating 2 back ups? I seem to have problem to keep 2 MBP running with same TM. Programs not responding even force quitting them!
    And what should I do to use both? Appreciate your help. Thank you.

    OK, but in general I can use this one device as both file storage and Time Machine.
    I thought that (for some reason) once I set up the Time Capsule to act just as Time Machine storage I would be unable to access it as a plain file storage.
    I have just tested it now, and it seems it can work as both - file storage and Time Machine. I can see the Time Machine backup file on it and folders where I can dump regular files.
    The only thing I would need to occasionally do is delete some old backups to keep Time Machine segment below 1 TB just so I have plenty of space for regular files.
    This thing is awesome. :)

  • Can you be signed on iMessage on 2 different ipods at the same time?*

    I have two itouch's. One is in another state that i work part-time and the other is at home. I was wondering if you can be signed on both devices and still receive the same messages and everything?

    Yup. That's the way iMessage works. If you are signed into the same profile on both devices, they will share messages.

  • TS3899 hi - why can't i delete emails once from iphone and ipad at the same time?

    When I delete emails from the iphone they still appear in the ipad. Why? How can I delete from both devices at the same time?

    You can and it should be automatic depending on your refresh rate.  If your phone and iPad refresh every hour, or only on request, then the iPad will not show the change until you refresh the email account.
    Next time you delete emails, try it....Refresh the screen on the iPad.
    This only works if iPad has internet connection.

  • Can I use one gift card for two apple ID at the same time?

    Can I activate one gift card for two different apple ID and use amount from gift card like bank account?

    No, an iTunes gift card can only be redeemed onto one account, and it can be used to buy content for that account (you can't, for example, redeem it on an account and then use some of it for gifting content to another account).

  • Can I use Photoshop on both my windows and Mac PC's

    I purchased Photoshop CS5 in May for my Windows PC.  I also want to install it on my Mac, However the download they provided me with doesn't have a Mac version.  Can I get Adobe to provide me with a cost free Mac version?
    I bought Lightroom 3 and was able to get both versions and have it running on both PCs...want to do this with CS5...

    You are confusing hardware and operating systems.
    If you are running the Windows OS on Mac hardware, you are running Windows.

    Yes. That will work fine.

  • Can ipod Nano work on PC and Mac at the same time?

    I have a PC at home, which my iPod is formatted to. I tried to plug it into my iMac at work today and it didn't recognize any of my songs. It gives me the option to erase and sync or transfer purchases, neither of which will let me play anything. If I'm not confused, I was able to plug in my old ipod to any computer and play the songs on it without actually transferring anything - kind of like using iTunes like an iHome or something. Once you ejected your ipod from the "foreign" computer, your songs came with it. Can you not do this anymore? Or is it a mac/PC issue? I'd really like to listen to my music at work. Please help!

    No. Standalone serials are platform specific. You will have to get Creative Cloud or a separate license for your Mac.

  • Using three monitors with screen spanning and mirror at the same time

    I have a mac pro with two graphics cards and I currently have three monitors connected using screen spanning which works fine.
    But I would like to change this so the desktop is spanned over two monitors and the third monitor is a mirror of one of the other two.
    Is this possible?

    Thanks very much, perfect!
    Only thing is you don't need to press the "?" button. But it seems a little temperamental when you option + click + drag. I found you to have to deselect but clicking anywhere in the window and reselected the window you wish to mirror (which I assume press the "?" does the same thing).
    I never thought it was going to be this simple, I was sure I would need to install a third party app or something.
    Thanks again!!!!!!!
