Chapter 3. Using iDisk > Using the Public Folder

Using the Public Folder

Using your iDisk's Public folder, you can share files and folders with just about anyone who has Internet access. This Public folder is a special folder on your iDisk that others can connect to without having to use your login and password. The settings for controlling it are built into Mac OS X.

Using your System Preferences, you can set access to the Public folder to allow people to see and download files from it, but not upload to it, or to both upload and download files from it. Setting your Public folder to only allow people to download items from it, however, protects you from having someone upload objectionable material or fill up the folder with stuff you don't want or need.
