Map a network drive in Mac OS

by Jón Ólafsson

I think the most frequent question I get from me Apple users is :
How do I connect to the network share on my shiny MacOS ?

This is a reminder for them (and for myself)

Method 1
Maps a network drive that will not disappear if you reboot, it will appear on the desktop,

  • From the Finder, hit Command+K or click GO and Connect to Server
  • Enter the path to the network drive:  smb://server/share and click ‘Connect’
  • Enter your login credentials and click “OK”

The drive is now mounted, but continue to add the drive to startup

  • Now enter into System Preferences, from the Apple menu
  • Click on Accounts
  • Click on Login Items
  • Click on the + button to add another login item
  • Locate the network drive you previously mounted
  • Click Add
  • Exit out of System Preferences

Your network drive will be mapped and automatically remounted when you reboot.

 

Method 2
Maps a network drive that will disappear if you reboot

  • From the Finder, hit Command+K or click GO and Connect to Server
  • Enter the path to the network drive:  smb://server/share and click ‘Connect’
  • Enter your login/password and click “OK” to mount the network drive

The drive will now appear on your desktop and in the Finder window sidebar
