Chapter 3. Using iDisk > Moving Files

Moving Files

After you've mounted your iDisk, copying files to it is a breeze. Your iDisk acts like any other disk, so saving files to it and removing files from it is as easy as dragging and dropping. But since you're connected to your iDisk via a network, copying files is likely to be slower than if you were copying them to another hard drive (unless you happen to have a mighty fat super-low-latency pipe in your house or at your business).

To copy a file to your iDisk

1.
Mount your iDisk.

The iDisk is now available for file transfers (Figure 3.30).

Figure 3.30. Your iDisk, when mounted, looks and works like any other storage device.


2.
Open a new window, navigate to the files that you want to copy to your iDisk, and select them (Figure 3.31).

Figure 3.31. You can copy files to your iDisk from just about any volume—hard drive, CD, or FireWire hard drive. In this case, we're copying files from a camping-pictures folder on a Mac's hard drive, although the mechanism is the same for any medium.


3.
Drag the selected files to the appropriate folder on your iDisk.

The selected items are successfully copied to your iDisk.
