Create a permanent sidebar entry for networked folders
Authored by: hoosker on Jul 24, '08 12:47:17PM

This hint addresses removable drives only, but I thought my experience might be helpful. I made a folder on my G5 computer to share files with the kid's Mini and my wife's MacBook all on an Airport network (10.4). I gave everyone permissions to read and write this folder. Normally to mount is folder (G5 Share) on one of the other computers I would go thru the process of choosing network, my G5, my account and choose "guest" (to avoid have to use a password) then open the G5 Share folder. To avoid this I just dragged the folder to the sidebar and even when my G5 was not running the folder stays there in the sidebar. Obviously my G5 would have to be on to access the share folder.
