Automatically sync Documents folder to iDisk
Authored by: chorcha on Apr 06, '09 05:14:38AM


I think I carried out your instructions correctly.

I dropped the Folders from my HD>Documents folder into my iDisk>Documents folder.

I made an alias of those folders.

I dropped those new alias folders into my HD>Documents folder, and deleted the original folders that were in there, so as only to have the alias folders in this location.

I then deleted the alias folders from my iDisk>Documents.

SO now I have:

Mac HD>Documents>Alias Folders
IDisk>Documents>Original Folders (i.e. the ones I dragged from the HD in the first place)

I then open/save/edit from the iDisk>Documents and all is synched!

The only thing I have noticed is that after the syncing I get a "Sync Conflict" messages

The conflict says:
which file do I want to keep - "This Computer" or "MobileMe". If I select the "This Computer" option then everything is synced. When I tried it the other way round, i.e. "MobileMe", then the documents weren't synced, (when I downloaded the document from my MobileMe site, it wasnt updated)

Is there any reason for getting the iDisk Sync conflicts message?
Maybe its just a result of the way the iDisk has to be set up to make the syncing work.

Just wanted to check that I had followed your advice correctly. It seems to work aside from the sync conflict message, so thats the main thing I guess.

It was a good post you made!
