Finder hang on network
Authored by: PasteEater on Oct 20, '03 03:21:32AM

This is a common problem, and happens whenever the mounted volume is "disconnected" somehow without being "ejected" by the Mac. Your Mac keeps searching for the volume at the last known address only to find nothing. I learned this by accidentally having some drives mounted over Airport, and then leaving the network.

You don't actually have to reboot. The process will timeout, but I think that it takes about 3 and a half minutes to do so. Also, don't try killing and restarting the Finder while it's searching; then you WILL have to reboot.
