Chapter 6. iDisk > To open your iDisk

To open your iDisk

1.
If you haven't already connected to the Internet, do so now.

2.
From the Go menu in the Finder, choose “iDisk,” and then choose “My iDisk” from the submenu, as shown below.

If you don't see the Go menu, you are not at the Finder—just click on any blank space you see of the Desktop and that will take you to the Finder.


If you've never logged in to your .Mac account before: The Mac will ask you to enter your member name and password before you can mount your iDisk.

After the first time you log in to your .Mac account: When you choose “My iDisk” from the Go menu, a window opens that displays your iDisk, as shown below. Amazing. Don't get confused with these folders that are named exactly the same as the folders in the Home folder on your computer. The icon in the iDisk title bar (the crystal ball) indicates you're looking at folders on Apple's servers.

When this icon appears on your Desktop (named with your .Mac membership name), double-click it to open a window showing the folders stored there. See page 260.
