    Has anyone else had a problem with 10.3.1 and syncing their iDisk. It worked perfectly until I installed the update. I'm getting an error #12 when I try to do it. I am also unable to unmount the disk after it mount it. eeeeek. Am I the only one out there with the problem???

    Actually, I'm getting a Mirror Agent refused to quit error when I try to reboot. If I wait patiently for three or four minutes, it will time out and let me gracefully reboot. I believe this is the program that controls the iDisk sync. I thought by turning off the automatic synchronization this issue would go away, but it continues.

    Mine has been working fine; I love the auto sync feature of iDisk in Panther :)

    I'm having the same problem and chose to get rid of the local copy of iDisk until Apple fixes it because I don't have the patience to wait 3 to 4 minutes.

    I am having random problem with mirror agent hanging on me. Yesterday I didn't not have a problem, today after plugging into the network, finder hung (since mirror agent was hung) Force quit did nothing, I couldn't even kill it from terminal. Eventually it quit on it's own, but it was very frustrating. I will give it one more chance, but the next time it locks up, iDisk sync is gone until Apple fixes the problem.

    I turned my iDisk sync back on following the 10.3.2 update, but it hasn't helped. So, that having the iDisk mounted on the Desktop, with synching set to manual is not enough to prevent the Mirror Agent from invoking itself. I agree. I'm going to turn off iDisk again to see if the Mirror Agent failing to quit in a timely fashion at reboots issue goes away.

    Problem Resolved???

    Well, after many months, I think the problem with my Mac losing its Internet connection in Safari/Mail/other Apple Internet apps (although not always Internet Explorer) is resolved. I've replaced my SpeedStream 5660 ADSL router with a new Zoom ADSL X5 modem/router. Since I installed this router last Friday, my iMac's Internet connection has been rock solid, so I've turned everything back on, including IP version 6 and my iDisk. Hopefully, this is the conclusion of a very frustrating issue.
