    I know that you can add 20 and 40 Gb of storage. Can you keep adding in increments of 20 and 40?

    I would be O.K. with paying for 1TB or more of online storage.

    Anyone know?

    I am sure their online link would show how much more you can order. Are you trying to get the bandwidth or the actual storage?

    that just wouldn't work practically because idisk is so slow.

    Storage

    I'm an editor and it would be great to have access to some of the projects myself and my other editors are working on when on the road.

    a dedicated server would be faster and cheaper!

    A hosted shared server would be more than sufficient and even cheaper.

    Yea, don't know why you'd ever want to use mobile me over something that actually works...

    Get an external hard drive. Far cheaper, far more reliable, much faster.

    I would just go to somewhere like dreamhost and get some storage. It would be way to expensive to get a TB and I highly doubt it's even possible with Mobile Me.

    Aah, so basically you want a shared online area for people to download project work?

    Then iDisk or any similar type of service would work for you. Keep in mind that there are probably cheaper options out there.

    Do you need that much space anyways?

    I tried uploading a 10 gig iPhoto Library to iDisk a few days ago, and it timed out after a day and a half of uploading (It got about 3/4 of the way).

    What good is the space if I can't use it!:mad:

    You were using backup software right? I think I responded to you in that thread, there are a lot of factors that play in. We are discussing files and projects. 10 GB is a LOT OF DATA, even for an external drive it takes sometime to finish, can you imagine when your upload speed is 128Kbps or so?
