    Device list - someone else's device included
    I took my Air to a 3rd party shop to help with some issues I was having. They were great and we resolved the issue, but now I have the guy from the 3rd party shop's MacBook Pro in my devices list in Finder, with my Air being "within" his MacBook Pro. See screenshot.

    Not sure how I can remove that device, since my Air looks like it is "inside" the MacBook Pro?

    Thanks

    Do you have an Apple ID and password? Sign into iCloud and remove the devices that do not belong to you.

    It appears your repair guy renamed your internal hard drive as "Gord's MacBook Air (2015). Just rename your internal hard drive back to "Macintosh HD" or whatever you had it named before.

    Next time make sure you use a reputable repair service to do work on your MacBook Air and not some third party repair shop that may or may not be qualified to do Apple repairs.

    On iCloud, my MacBook Air is listed as "Mac's MacBook Pro". I'm actually Gord, and named my drive "Gord's MacBook Air (2015)".
    The issue I have is that "Mac's MacBook Pro" seems to be the main device, with my drive "Gord's MacBook Air (2015)" listed inside of it. I don't no how to remove "Mac's MacBook Pro", especially since my drive seems to be sitting 'inside' of it.

    All you need to do is rename them. Rename "Mac's MacBook Pro" to "Gord's MacBook Pro" and then rename the hard drive to "Macintosh HD" as I suggested above. Not difficult to do.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    The icons are not both drives. It looks like your machine has the name "mac's MacBook Pro" and the drive is the name you gave it. Take a look at System Preferences/Sharing and see what is in the "Computer Name" block. He may have had to do some sharing to fix the problem, so he set it up for that. You can pick the sharing you want, if any.

    Alright, I get it now. Duh.
    It is the machine name and the drive name - I thought it was showing two drives. Easily 'fixed' ("although nothing was really wrong).
    Thanks!
