    So i am working with a lot of drives around 5-6, well thats a lot for me atleast. But the thing is i have backups on there (Before time machine) so its just Users, library, applications etc copied in there manually. Therefore it shows in the "Open with" and its annoying since i see for example when I'm trying to open an audio file
    iTunes 1
    iTunes 1.01
    iTunes 3.6
    iTunes 4.01
    iTunes 5.06
    iTunes 7.1
    iTunes 7.6
    iTunes 8.0
    iTunes 9.5
    iTunes 10.0
    iTunes 10.3
    iTunes 10.7
    iTunes 11

    And it goes on with a bunch off different drives, how can do so that it only recognizes my files in /Applications/ ?

    Thanks.

    Try turning Spotlight off on those external volumes and see that takes them off the list.

    That's never worked for me. Unmounting the volumes works.

    But i can't unmount them since I'm using the contents for them.
