    looking for trash files
    :confused: i think what you are asking for is an alias (shortcut in the windows world), so connect to your shared drive, then right click or 'ctrl + click' on the mounted drive and select make alias.

    you can put the alias on the desktop, or in your home folder, or wherever. double click to re-mount the drive if you have saved the username and password in your keychain (autocomplete in windows).

    hope that helps.
