    Can you rename your iDisk?
    Say, mine was ripepimple and I'd like to change it to disgust_inc? (Hypothetically).
    I'm repurposing the iDisk and the name no longer fits. Tried Apple's support site but came up short.
    If I load it and hit Info I don't get to change it under names & extension.
    It certainly makes sense not to make it easy because the iweb site launched with it has the original name in its address.

    I would also like to know the answer to this question... although, my gut tells me that it isn't possible.

    I'm gonna go ahead and say that iDisk is like a Boot Camp partition in the respect that you can't rename it.

    It's not so much that you can't rename it as you can't change your MobileMe username. The iDisk isn't a physical disk that you can assign attributes to, you're accessing a sharepoint on a remote drive that is assigned to your username.

    Thus, the consensus was correct: you can't rename it.

    Your Boot Camp disk can be renamed from the Windows side

    That's so obvious, I dunno why I didn't look at that before.

    Thanks!
