I have a server with four partitions connected to my mac. At startup they

automatically connect, and show up in the sidebar. Or... that's how it was for years.


The new Mountain Lion sidebar shows only two of them, and it is impossible to

put the others in the sidebar. It refuses to add them.


Is there a limit of servers(partitions) that may be added to the left sidebar of the finder?


ps. Maybe i am the only one that has this issue.

I look for a .plist preference file to delete, but i don't know which one.

    Hello Hans,


    Normally in Client OSX the limit is 10.


    Mount that Share once, then once the Globe Icon shows up on the Desktop, drag that Globe Icon to the right side of the Dock between Applications & Trash. You now have a Dynamic Mount, a quick click on the Icon in the Dock will connect you.


    On the multiple Shortcuts...


    Mount them all, when show up on the Desktop, then create a new Folder maybe named Shares on/in the Desktop, drag all those Shares shown on the Desktop to that Folder, (you can even rename them once there, if you wish), drag that Folder to the right side of the Dock between Applications & Trash, this should give you a popup menu to select from.:-)


    To automount them, drag those Aliases to the Accounts Pref Pane's Login Items Window.
