Important! When using a Picture Keeper Pro for the first time on a Mac, be aware of this Time Machine message. "Do you want to use this device as a Time Machine Backup"? Answer "No" to this message. A "Yes" answer will format the drive for use as a Time MAchine backup. You will need to have Support remotely reload the PIcture Keeper software.
