Reclaim missing iDisk space revisited
Authored by: rtilley on Mar 06, '06 06:22:46PM

I had a file called ".filler.idsff" that was over 900 MB.
This is in OS X 10.4.5

I deleted it with the Finder, and a new 7 MB one appeared,
but the missing space did not return.
However, a few hours later (the next morning) the space was back.
Do not know if anything was lost.

I also have syncing turned on.
Both my wife and I use the same iDisk for some backups.
Not sure how syncing works in such a usage.
I would hope that if she deletes a file, my computer does not undelete it from its cache, and that if she creates a file, my computer does not delete it, since it is missing from my cache.
How does this work?
DOES this work???????

Have a look at:

and search for the post under:
iLife's Little Mysteries

Bascially, that file may be created by Backup 3, and you may decide to delete it within Backup 3.
