Forum Question: The fate of iDisk

Apple tells us that iDisk will be discontinued after, or maybe before, MobileMe is killed. I have not heard any speculation as to if there will be a place to relocate the files and documents that currently are stored on our iDisk. I “assume” iWork & iLife files will be provided a new home. However. what about files created in Filemaker, Bento, Excel, Word etc.

    If you like using cloud storage, I would simply start using an alternative like DropBox. It is more-or-less the same thing.
    I’m a bit confused by the rest of of your question, though. You don’t have to put files on iDisk (or DropBox) at all. Just store them on your local drive. Is there some reason you can’t store them locally? And files are files — it doesn’t matter if they are iWork files, iLife files, Filemaker, etc. Just files. Store them on your local drive, or a cloud solution like DropBox, either way. It doesn’t matter which application created the file.

    Thanks Gary. The example file types that I mentioned were not intended to be actual production versions from their host applications. I should have clarified my question by saying that they were backup versions that one may wish to store in the Cloud. Your point about using services like DropBox is well taken.
