I maintain several Macs at home. They all utilize files off of a NAS for various applications, and these are accessed via shares. The shares, when active, show up in /Volumes. AFP is the network file protocol I'm using.
Often, especially after a reboot, applications fail because they cannot access their files. I find when this is the case that the original share exists in /Volumes, as, for example:
but the applications are unable to access files via it, and there is a different share name in /Volumes which now appears to be the active mount, which is:
I have to disconnect from the NAS and do a "sudo umount [AnnoyingShares]" until there are none, then reconnect to the NAS to clear these and restore the single, valid share. Sometimes there will be a number of them, such as:
et cetera. So my question is, where are these extra mounts coming from and how do I "fix" this so that the "original" share is activated and working and the OS doesn't create the -1 or -2 duplicates?
