Thread: Disable Finder window pop-up
11-20-2010, 04:54 PM #1Disable Finder window pop-up
I recently mapped my network HDD to my MacBook Air and made it so it reconnects when I log into my profile by adding it to my login items for my user profile. However, when I log back into my user profile, the drive successfully connects, but a Finder window pops up with the contents of the drive. Is there a script or something I can use to disable this feature? I know the Time Machine drive does not duplicate this behavior when it connects. Any suggestions would be appreciated."Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower."

Hmm. I used to deal with this myself. What I ended up doing was create an applescript that would connect to it without opening a Finder window, and putting that applescript on the startup list. If I can remember that script I will post it here for you.
Okay it is actually relatively simple.
try mount volume "afp://IPAddress/NetworkShare" end try
BTW if you use login name/password to log into the network drive, then it would be like this:
try mount volume "afp://login:password@IPAddress/NetworkShare" end try

Pretty simple solution, but it proved to be very effective.
