Hi Y'all,


Have been having a problem with multiple appearances of shared drive icons on the desktop. A new one shows up whenever a shared drive is written to, resulting in multiple appearances of that icon. This situation appears to be unique for one machine of the three I have running ML (10.8.2, Build 12C60) OS X.


What settings should I check to verify that it isn't some kind of a setting on this machine causing the anomaly. See my other post on this issue. I thought that this was Server related, but after comparing with other clients on my Server, it appears not, as I cannot get the same to occur there.



Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion, (3,1) 10GB RAM, 500GB HD+250GB SSD
