    My gf & I have user accounts on the same iMac and for a while now something odd has been happening with our iDisks:

    Some time after logging in (or if one account is logged in and the other is then logged in afterward), the other person's iDisk appears on the desktop as a private folder icon (standard blue folder with a 'no entry' sign/badge stuck on it).

    If you try to eject/unmount the 'iDisk'/folder, it says it cannot be removed as it is currently in use.

    Any ideas as to what might be causing this would be great…

    PS
    Just to be clear, the iDisks are not being purposefully activated through the Finder's Go menu, nor are they in the login items list.

    I posted this on another forum, and I had a reply from someone else who is having the same problem.

    Unfortunately they had not found a fix either…

    (just thought i'd post again as this suggest that the problem is not just a one-off)
