    Hello & a warm welcome!

     

    iDisk is no longer supported by Apple.

     

    I assume you had a .mac/MobileMe account at one time?

     

    If so, go to System Preferences>.Mac or MobileMe and remove your username and password.

     

    Unmount any iDisk you may have.

     

    If it should fail to dismount then, (Yeah crazy deal), either reboot, or open Terminal & paste in this exact line...

     

    sudo umount -f iDisk/

     

    It'll ask you for an Admin password that won't be echoed, but hit enter/return anyway.

     

    Snow Leopard/10.6.x Requirements...

     

    General requirements

       * Mac computer with an Intel processor

        * 1GB of memory (I say 4GB at least, more if you can afford it)

        * 5GB of available disk space (I say 30GB at least)

        * DVD drive for installation

        * Some features require a compatible Internet service provider; fees may apply.

        * Some features require Apple’s MobileMe service; fees and terms apply.
