    So, this evening all of the sudden my Time Machine backup disk said that it was full. I was checking around and for some reason the FileSync folder (under Library>>FileSync) is now taking up 62.66 GB.

    Earlier this afternoon, FileSync crashed and I click "report to Apple." and didn't think anything else of it.

    The specific file in the FileSync folder that is 62.66 GB is an iDisk File. Specifically JW008_iDisk.sparsebundle.

    Does anyone have a solution for me getting my lost hard drive space back? Can I just delete this file and free up the room? What exactly would this do?

    Thanks!

    i just deleted the whole folder and so far no problems... i going to the mac store this weekend anyways so i will ask about this. i also disabled idisk and turned off its backing up to see it that would prevent this from happening again.

    I'm having the same issue, and I do not want to reformat my dang machine. I have a 199GB FileSync File

    User/Library/FileSync/

    Disable iDisk Sync.

    I turned iDisk Sync off under the MobileMe preferences. This solved the problem for me. It even automatically removed the file. That's crazy that there would be such a horrible flaw though. I'm not sure what you would do if you actually needed to use that $100/year iDisk though.
