    I've got my drive split 5gb/15gb for my mail and files respectively.

    Since I upgraded it's been showing some strange figures under the iDisk tab in MobileMe prefs on my macbook.

    It reads:
    Mail Storage - 5.37gb
    iDisk Storage - 16.11gb

    it also reflects these same figures through finder if i open the idisk.

    Has anyone else experienced these issues?

    Thanks for the quick response, did a quick search on the topic and it has all come clear very quickly.

    It'll be interesting when they run this methodology through the rest of their products (if it's planned) as it will confuse a hell of a lot of people.
