I use and really like MobilMe. My only complaint is that 10gb isnt enough storage. I would lay the extra cash to add more storage but the MM price is.....idiotic. I would LOVE to find a cloud based backup/drive that mounts on the desktop like the iDisk....is there such a thing?

I guess Dropbox is pretty much what you are looking for.
2 GB of space are free, 50 GB costs 99 $ per year.

+1 to Dropbox being the solution you're looking for! I sent you a private message about this too.

You might want to consider using Jungle Disk Desktop which does give you a network drive on your Mac (and any other type of computer you might have too).

Check out Go Daddy online file storage. I believe it is $29 / year. 100gb

You do know you can set more disc space than 10gb in the storage settings. 20gb is the limit though.

If you are looking for serious secure Cloud Storage with unlimited space go JungleDisk. You pay only for storage usage (https://www.jungledisk.com/personal/desktop/pricing/) and it's very secure. Configure it using CloudFiles. Also includes universal iPhone/iPad app (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/jungle-disk/id359523081?mt=8)

If only a few GB's documents go DropBox. DropBox is very good for fast share between computers.

Both my wife and I are on Dropbox, it's killer compared to iDisk. The syncing behaves a lot better with Office and Endnote, and the iPad/iPhone apps are pretty good.

Sync across LAN (LAN Sync)
Shared Folders
256-bit encryption

What's not to love?! :D

If you'd like a referral, PM me. The referral includes 250MB on top of the complimentary 2GB.
