    I have a late 2013 MBPr 2.6/8/256 and I love it.

    Let's say I login to "Account 1" and run TimeMachine and click "Backup Now"

    Will it also backup "Account2," "Account3," etc etc

    I actually have 5 accounts total on my MBPr.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    yes, it will backup ALL (including all user's home folders = accounts), unless you exclude something in Time Machine preferences / Options.

    Great. How do you backup bootcamp files?

    TM backups Macintosh HD only, not the Windows partition.
