    This actually started with Mavericks and now occurs in Yosemite. When we work, I put the current job folders in my sidebar so I can readily access them. However, if I ever have to reboot my computer or the server, all my folder disappear from my sidebar and I have to manually enter them. Not uncommon for me to have to do this every single day. When I had the cat OS this never happened. Reboot and all my sidebar items were right there.

    Also, I notice that there is a lot of lag on each workstation since upgrading to mavericks/yosemite. Not sure how much is the OS and how much is old networking. I have same routers and hubs from 10-15 years ago.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Are those folders on your Mac or on a network drive?

    Server

    The files reside on the server as they always have. But as I mentioned earlier, with the Cat OS, even though the files reside on the server, a reboot did not affect my sidebars. FYI: we copy files as needed to the HD so we can work faster and not have 5 people pulling on the server. But the folder on the sidebar is always the master folder which resides on the server. Makes it easier to copy to and from HD when working. I'm a bit stumped why folder sidebars didn't go away up to Snow Leopard but now go away in Mavericks and Yosemite. In fact, sometimes the sidebars disappear even though the server is still mounted to desktop. Just very odd behavior. Does it matter that the server is an external HD and not a computer?

    Thanks again.

    It might matter. I don't have any way to test that where I am.

    Try putting an alias of one of the server folders on your desktop (or anywhere in your User folder) then adding that alias to the sidebar.
