On my iMac i can't manually sync the idisk. There is a symbol to sync it, but it is not activ.
The local copy of idisk is there, but only synced once.
THX for your tipp

Assuming you're using Panther, in your System Preferences there should be a panel for .Mac. In there, click on the iDisk tab and there is an option to "Create a local copy of your iDisk". Under that is the option to synchronize automatically or manually. If it's automatic, then it will sync whenever (or soon after) any files contained in your iDisk (either the local copy or the .Mac copy) are changed.

I don't think this was available with Jaguar.

Manual sync with iDisk only after reboot
Authored by: RemoBolli on Jan 05, '04 03:59:50PM

When i switch the modem on after the login, then i have not the correct icon to sync the idisk manually. There is no dot inside the sync-circle, and the icon is gray. The internet works, but the synchronization of the idisk works only after a reboot.
What's wrong with my installation ?
I'm using Panther 10.3.n.

Manual sync with iDisk only after reboot

I'm sorry. I don't have an answer for you. If you have it configured to sync automatically, it should just work. I haven't played around with manual syncing, and I'm connected to the net via a DSL line, so there is no modem involved. What happens if you tell it to sync automatically instead of manually?

If you continue to have problems, you might want to try posting to Apple's Support Discussion Boards, which you can find by going to mac.com and clicking on the "Support" link on the left.
