    Hi all,

    Looking to replace iDisk. Currently, I use it to keep files - I like the web interface.

    Also use the Sites folder to share images on forums like this... it is gonna suck to have a bunch of broken links when iDisk gets shut down...

    Anyway, do you have any idea if a similar service exists? I don't mind paying.

    I've looked at dropbox, but it doesn't seem to be a good file server for my shared forum images. Maybe I need dropbox + a cheap web host?

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks!
    -Stephen

    Have you tried Dropbox?

    Ignore me
    Doh.

    Didn't read your post properly.

    Though I've never used it for this, apparently you can use Dropbox to host websites by using the Public folder. I would imagine that you could then also use that method to host pictures that you were hoping to link to?
    If you're going to join (assuming you don't have an account), try and find someone with an account (i.e. me) and get them to refer you... you'll both benefit by getting an extra 250mb of storage space.
