Yesterday Apple posted more information about the iCloud transition, and its now official that iDisk will not be part of iCloud. Can anyone recommend a service that is similar in terms of FUNCTIONALITY and PRICING. However don't mention dropbox and sugarsync because folder sharing with users without a dropbox/sugarsync account cant be done and dropbox 2 GB for free is too little and 50 GB for 50 $ too much... Any suggestions? Thanks

Better yet is www.OpenDrive.com.

More of an upgrade than a replacement -- All the features I was used to with iDisk plus is very nice to be able to sync files and actually share them with family.

There are two great "cloud storage" articles here [gizmodo] and here [lifehacker].

The best replacement for iDisk I have found is Wuala (www.wuala.com). It is almost identical to iDisk, works the same way, keeps Wuala in the Finder or on the desktop, very simple to use. And its free! Better than dropbox or any of the others I tried.

not yet no, although it's rumoured to be coming soon. Third=party backup apps work with it okay though as it mounts and a regular shared disk on the Mac desktop or via FTP
