Create a fully functional Volumes folder in 10.3's dock

A few more things about this hint:

Finder aliases work just as well as symlinks.

You can combine this all into one script, including the run part by doing something like this:


-- in the next line add the path to your "Drives" folder
property script_folder : (path to documents as string) & "Drives"

on run
	Update()
end run

on adding folder items to this_folder after receiving added_items
	Update()
end adding folder items to

on removing folder items from this_folder after losing these_items
	Update()
end removing folder items from

on Update()
	tell application "Finder"
		set theFolder to folder script_folder
		
		delete every item of theFolder
		
		set theDisks to disks
		repeat with i in theDisks
			make new alias at theFolder to i
		end repeat
	end tell
end Update


This works just fine without needing two script files.
