    Anyone else experiencing this in Lion? My external drives are there when I start up, but then disappear. The finder preferences are still checked to display them, but they have gone... I can still access them via the finder window sidebar (and eject if needed), but it is a little annoying. Is there are work round for this, or am I waiting for 10.7.1...?

    Click Preference under Finder's menu, then tick Hard disks under "Show these items on the desktop."

    Hope this helps.

    It really doesn't help, as indicated in the original post.
