I had a NAS on my network at one time but sold it, but OS X still attempts to mount it every time that I restart my iMac, and complains via a pop-up that it is not available. I do not see it listed as an auto-mount under my login settings, so I don't know how to remove it or where the information to auto-mount is coming from. It gets annoying to have to cancel the pop-up upon every boot.

Try this article and see if it helps. If your NAS shows up there, #-comment it out or remove the line.

Code:
sudo nano /private/etc/auto_master
Code:
#
# Automounter master map
#
+auto_master            # Use directory service
/net                    -hosts          -nobrowse,hidefromfinder,nosuid
/home                   auto_home       -nobrowse,hidefromfinder
/Network/Servers        -fstab
/-                      -static
#/somewhere/OLD_NAS
Code:
ctrl+x, y, enter
Code:
sudo automount -vc

Nope sorry, it's not in there. Thanks for trying to help though.
