iDisk is getting slower and slower... is Apple going to do something about it?
It takes forever to mount... and it takes longer than forever to show the contents in my Pictures folder. I feel so sick about it.

Can I access my iDisk through FTP?

You might try Goliath (SP?). It is a program designed to allow you to access web folders which are common on the PC side. It uses a different protocol than a standard mount of the iDisk.

I was happy to find out I could set it up using a web folder interface because it allowed me to create a web folder for it on my computer at work. It makes a good replacement for a floppy, I can upload one place and download at the other...

All and all though, I think iDisk is relatively fast. I remember at one point downloading an update to a program that the company housed on an iDisk as a mirror. The transfer rates I got were the fastest I've ever gotten though the connection, over 100k per second...

Most of the time my iDisk lags a bit at first, but then the real bandwith kicks in and it takes about as much time to show the contents of a folder that X does ;)

When getting EVN off of my iDisk I was getting around 250-300K/sec........fast enough for me....
