    I have a couple of network drives I need to connect to when I boot my Mac up at work. This seems like the perfect task for Automator. I have no experience using it, but it SEEMED easy enough...

    So in the Finder actions in Automator there is an action that says "Connect to Servers." This seemed like a logical choice, so I dragged it over. Then I dragged over the two volumes I need to connect to. But it doesn't work... it won't connect them (even though it runs like its complete). Also, how do I get this to run when I log in?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    There is another option under Finder called "Get Specified Servers". Try that one.
    To get the Automator file to work at startup you need to save the file as Application, and then in your Accounts Preferences go to Startup Items and find the Automator Application.
