Fix an issue with Dreameaver and networked previews Apps
When using Dreamweaver's Browser Preview feature when editing a file on a network drive, you will receive a path name which is incorrect in your browser window:
file:///NetworkDrive/Folder/Folder/file.html
Where the path name should be:
file:///Volumes/NetworkDrive/Folder/Folder/file.html
To resolve this instead of making a 'site' for each website with the text Volumes: added to the front of the path name for the site it is much easier to use a symbolic link. Open Terminal and type
$ cd /
$ ln -s /Volumes/NetworkDrive NetworkDrive
Please note that NetworkDrive should be replaced with your drive's name. You will now see what looks like an alias on the root of your hard drive, but this is a symbolic link and you should have no problems previewing your sites.

Hide the NetworkDrive folder from the Finder

After creating the NetworkDrive symlink, you can hide it from the Finder by using the SetFile command:

SetFile -P -a V /NetworkDrive
