Hi there,
I just signed up for .mac
I'd like to have separate folders in my Public folder, each needing its own password to get to.
I'd like to have:
1. folder 1, with documents for my workmates, with a work-related password
2. a folder with photos for my family members, with a password just for family
3. a folder with my own files that I might need to get at, with my own personal password.

Is this possible? (I've read the Help section for iDisk, and it didn't help me)

Hi again,
Is there somewhere else I should be looking for help on this? Is there an iDisk forum somewhere that someone might steer me to?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Tried Apple's iDisk support page I presume?

There is a link to iDisk discussion forum in the lower left of that page.

Closest help topic I could find to your request is this one. Doesn't really cover multiple passwords.

I don't think you will be able to do this from the public folder, but you can create separate homepage "sites" each with their own (pw protected, if you like) download page.

I've done some more reading on this and I'm thinking Paul's method may be the only obvious workaround.
