New MobileMe iDisk

New iDisk Icon

I wish it was blue. Oh well.

P.S. I had to reboot my Mac to get this. Logging out likely would have worked too but I wanted to fix a USB issue1 that a log-out wouldn't solve, so I rebooted.

Update: My Mac Pro control panel lists only a 10 GB iDisk, but the MobileMe (me.com) site says I should have nearly 20 GB. What's up with that?

Footnotes

  1. After a brief power outage that left the Mac Pro on but not my Sound Sticks, I couldn't get sound to play from the Sound Sticks.

  1. I had to turn off iDisk Sync (in System Preferences) and turn it back on again for all of the aliases (Web, etc.,) to work as expected.

    I rebooted, and mine seem to be okay here.

  3. Have you tracked down the iDisk icon in the system files? It has to be referenced somewhere- Photoshop Hue change!

    True. Or maybe I'll just get in touch with my purple side. /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/iDiskGenericIcon.icns

  5. It took until today for my iDisk to show as having 19GB of space (1GB for mail) on my Mac, whereas it has shown as 20GB on http://www.me.com/account since Friday. Well, when I could get in on Friday, for the odd minute or two.

    It appears to be that way here as well right now, though my iDisk is behaving strangely. /Volumes/ lists several disks named "iacas-1" through "iacas-5" for some reason, as well as "iacas" which is aliased from "iDisk." Copying to the iDisk that appears on my desktop is incredibly slow - yet they appear online as soon as they're copied to the iDisk. I hope that's not how this is going to work.

    I think at this point I'm going to remove the iDisk, reboot, and re-create it. My other computers don't have "iacas" and "iacas-1" through "iacas-5" in /Volumes/.

    There is a blue version here:

    Unfortunately it's not a .icns file, so a simple replacement isn't an option. Icon Composer couldn't even seem to recognize the file.

    I found true .icns files here.
