Hi, I currently have my home directory folders (Desktop, Documents etc) on an external drive and point to the relevant folders using the "ln -s" command in Terminal ('ln -s "/Volumes/Data/Documents" Documents' etc). What I am wondering is, is it possible to have these folders on a NAS Unit, the reason for this is my NAS has 2 x 3TB drives (RAID) so that there is a constant backup of all data (not just user folders) rather than just relying on Time Machine. The problem I have come across is that OS X does not always connect to the network prior to logging in, so mapped drives are not always available before any links could be created. Can anyone please advise if there is a way round this, or suggest an alternative method. I currently use Wireless to connect to the router and NAS, but can easily swap that for an ethernet connection.
