Chapter 3. Using iDisk > Creating a Local iDisk Copy

Creating a Local iDisk Copy

You can set your Mac OS X preferences to set up a local copy of your iDisk. This local iDisk lets you browse the contents of your iDisk very quickly, and it's there even if your network is not (such as when you're traveling with your PowerBook). A local copy of your iDisk takes up space on your hard drive (roughly the same amount as the size of your iDisk), but in these days of 40-plus-gigabyte hard drives on the low end of standard equipment, you won't even miss the paltry megabytes that a full iDisk copy would take.

If you keep a local copy of your iDisk on your hard drive, you can synchronize it with your “real” iDisk via your Internet connection. To do this, you'll choose from two options: automatic and manual.
