10.3: Use the .mac iDisk to store common application data
Authored by: seanhussey on Dec 16, '03 11:40:57AM

Does this work with NNW Lite as well? it looks like I'd have to store my prefs file on my iDisk as well. The NNW Folder in Application Support only has the history.db file.

Otherwise, great hint!

You can store anything you like on your iDisk

I'm not familiar with NNW Lite as I've only used the full version so far. However, using the guidelines in the above hint, you can store pretty much anything you like on your iDisk, including individual preference files for NNW Lite.

Option 2 in the "detailed instuctions" portion of the hint allows you to maintain a local copy of your iDisk on your machine. That's its main advantage. You'll always have those files available to you even if the iDisk on Apple's servers is unavailable.

I can't guarantee that everything will always work 100% of the time when using iDisk. It *is* dependent on how well Apple holds up their end of the bargain and keeps your iDisk available. However, I'm willing to pay the price of some possible downtime for the convenience of keeping some files in sync without having to do it by hand.

I wouldn't trust my most important data to iDisk, at least not without doing regular backups.
