Change the .mac disk/email ratio
Authored by: stokini on Oct 05, '04 12:52:28PM

I don't know anything about MirrorAgent, but I had the same problem with the size of the local iDisk. I kept getting a message saying that it would update the local copy to the correct size, but never actually did it.

To fix the problem, go to the .Mac pane of System Preferences, click on the iDisk tab, and turn off the local iDisk. (The contents will be backed up to a disk image on your desktop.) Quit System Preferences, reopen it and turn the local iDisk back on. The local copy will be recreated at the correct size.

You have to change to a different panel (or Quit) and it will stop and ask if you want to do that. And it takes a while for the local copy to be re-downloaded.

Change the .mac disk/email ratio

Well I have all these troubles and more. I get that same warning about my iDisk local copy size being incorrect each time I wake from sleep or log-in, but here's my biggest problem. My .Mac prefpane under iDisk doesn't have the option to turn off/on a local copy. I'm not kidding. And I know I have a local copy, because I remember doing it. But for some odd reason, the controls for it don't show up anymore. I have no idea why, and without that I can't seem to fix my local iDisk.

Anyone have a clue why that would be happening? FYI, I emailed .Mac tech support days ago and have yet to hear from them. So much for support.

I turned off local copy. Quit system prefs. Logged out. (I waited about 15 minutes until mirror agent was quiet and let me logout.) Logged back in. Turned local copy back on. Wait for it to resync and you're good to go.

I did this on 2 machines, both 10.3.5 the day of the switch and it worked perfectly.
