    Hi all,
    there's no way to open a file stored in mobile me iDisk account without downloading it on desktop ?
    I've to modify often files stored in mobileme and i loose a lot of time-
    - downloading from mobile me on my desktop
    - edit them
    - upload on mobile me again

    i don't want to use syncronize iDisk option ... for security reason i prefer to leave all my data only in the cloud ...

    Yup - in Finder go to the GO menu and select "connect to Server" (or command-k for a shortcut).

    for the address enter 'https://idisk.me.com/your-MM-name' without quotes and, of course, 'your-MM-name' is your login name. Click the plus button to add it to the favorites list so you won't have to type it every time.

    This can also be done in Windows via the "Map network drive" button when viewing "My Computer."
