Create a permanent sidebar entry for networked folders
Authored by: Bessemer on Jul 22, '08 06:04:26AM

Er... what do you mean by 'local alias'? Should I just drag and drop removable folder icon to the local drive with Cmd and Option buttons pressed down? Well, this sure results in making a new alias, but it fails to remin as a sidebar shortcut as well - actually, it disappears immediately as soon as I eject either external or flash drive.

What am I doing wrong, Doc?

The idea is to make the alias (like you did), but store it somewhere locally, like in your Documents folder. Once it's in there, then add it to the sidebar.
