    What's the real difference/advantage to choosing 'Share File' instead of just putting it in the public folder? And, two other miscellaneous questions:

    1. Can a user upload a file onto my public folder?

    2. Can I password protect my public folder?

    With share file you can password protect "just that file"

    If you use your public folder, other users have access to ALL of the files in your public folder...

    Yes - other users can upload files to your public folder

    Yes - you can password protect your public folder in MM/syst pref's

    I have a friend asking, and I can't seem to find anything specific, how does another non-mobile me member upload to your public folder?

    From OSX Help:

    The instructions are different for a Windows client, but this can also be found in OSX Help.
