Help with Lion and getting rid of outdated disk mount

by mtumesoul / August 9, 2013 2:13 AM PDT

Hi all,

I have an iMac and just upgraded to Mountain Lion. Ever since, when I start up, I get this message:

"Enter your name and password to connect to <address>. Connect as Guest/Registered User." And then there's a name and password field.

The address in the connect-to line is a shared disk address from years ago that I haven't connected to in a long time.

Question is, how do I find the script/program where this is being launched at start-up? I've tried doing a search for pieces of the address (it was an Egnyte address), but to no avail.

Many thanks in advance, Annette

Unfortunately not -- I deleted AdobeResourceSynchronizer from login items, but still get the original message upon booting up. Any other thoughts/things to try?

Thanks oodles Happy

You wouldn't happen to remember the username and password

for that mount, would you?

If you do, try it.

It obviously will not connect but it may change a preference somewhere that will prevent from even trying next time

I don't remember it -- I tried all the possibilities, to no avail. I did try just logging in as guest and it accepted it; if I can't find another solution I might try just checking the remember me box on the guest login, and maybe it won't crop up -- i can't imagine it does anything...

thanks for the help! Happy
