Every time my external hdd gets unmounted illegally, like when it goes to sleep and OS X gives me a warning about unsafe ejecting, OS X puts a number after the mount point the next time that hdd gets mounted. For example I started with the mount point: "/Volumes/ARCHIVES" with ARCHIVES being the external hdd. I'm now at "/Volumes/ARCHIVES 4" The 4 doesn't show up in Finder and for all intent and purpose the hdd still shows up as ARCHIVES everywhere else. But having a number at the end of the mount point messes up some programs that calls files from that hdd. Motion, iPhoto, DVDSP4, etc... all can't locate their libraries in the external hdd every time the mount point changes. I reimport all their libraries after every time this happens but I can't keep doing it if OS X is just going to change the mount point again and again. So my first question is, why is it doing this? What gives with adding the numbers? Second question: how do I change the mount point myself?
