Hello all,

Need some help on mounting network drive on boot. I was able to have the drives mount on boot but when they mount the windows open up with them. I clicked hide on the boot option but the didn't help. So if anyone knows how to keep them from opening it would be a great help.

Connect the drive, and then drag the icon from the desktop into the Login Items list for your user. I've had luck with that. I've also accomplished this with an applescript that runs on login.

tell application "Finder"
try
mount volume "<PATH>"
end try
end tell

Thanks Tom I have to look into the apple script as the dries mount, but the boxes pop up also which is what I don't want. Clicking hide didn't help either.
