In general, what are you trying to back up? Are you about to upgrade to Windows 8 and thinking about what you want to backup before this happens?

comment Why is Maps stuck on a purple loading screen?
Thanks. Apple doesn't release Boot Camp drivers incrementally. Boot Camp is bundled with OS X, so you only see Boot Camp updates when a new OS X comes out.

comment How do I stop Google from bugging me to install the Start page Google app?
@Goran_Mandic In my case, it was definitely the Delete browsing history on exit option. I have amended DzinX's answer to specify this, but the community must vote to accept this answer.

comment How to log into Windows 8 without using the keyboard (In case of Keyboard malfunction or other problems with the keyboard)?
If my keyboard doesn't work, logging in won't help me much. I need a solution that gets my keyboard working.

@Goran_Mandic His answer doesn't explicitly mention the problem: Deleting browsing history on exit was checked.

comment How do I stop Google from bugging me to install the Start page Google app?
@DzinZ You were right. IE was deleting browser history, including cookies, on exit.

comment How do I stop Google from bugging me to install the Start page Google app?
The behavior doesn't appear to be related to which cookie settings I use. I lowed the privacy level way down, but I'm still prompted to install the Google Start app each time I open IE.

@OliverSalzburg BootCamp is not working with Windows 8. Hence my post about manual trackpad configuration: superuser.com/questions/495693/…

@soandos It varies, but it's about 5-10 minutes each time.

@OliverSalzburg Not at all. Apple Mac OS X comes with a built-in utility for dual booting Mac and Windows: Boot Camp.

comment How to log into Windows 8 without using the keyboard (In case of Keyboard malfunction or other problems with the keyboard)?
@Ramhound, A) My keyboard works fine in Mac OS X. B) This is a MacBook Pro laptop, so it's not easy to replace the keyboard. This shouldn't be a configuration problem as I have just started using Windows 8; I haven't had time to mess up any configs.

Thank you. Where exactly are the Boot Camp drivers located?

Very cool. For the moment, restarting my computer a bunch of times temporarily fixes the problem.

comment Windows 8 freezes up after ten minutes
@SLaks What are you saying? Windows 8 is freezing up for me every ten minutes after I boot up. Obviously this was not fixed.

comment Windows 8 installer: Something Happened
I remember when I upgraded from XP to Vista, and Vista to 7, that Windows repeatedly failed to burn the ISOs correctly. I'll try again using Mac's Disk Utility.

comment Are old Microsoft Visual C++ 2005/2008 Redistributables safe to remove?
But is it safe to remove old versions of the 2005 runtime, and old versions of the 2008 runtime?
