I've noticed that someone - meaning an application not a person, has been creating numbered references to my volumes. Where the computer has no external volumes it seems to stay at just the Volume name with no numbers but our bigger editing computers have in some cases 4 FW ext drives and a DROBO linked to them. These volumes, in the folder named Volumes, are up to number 8 in some cases - there is LaCie 300_1 and _2, _3, _4 and so on, up to 8, all the others are at least up to number 5. I didn't think it was a problem until I found that FCP, iTunes, Amadeus Pro, Motion and AE were telling me that they could not find Media files that were actually where they've always been and I found that they were looking for the files on "drive name_3" or "_4" and the list was getting bigger. Which application makes these references and how can I stop it numbering them?
I first noticed it with Curator (the Media handler from Caffeine) in Tiger but it's getting worse in Snow Leopard and I don't use Curator in SL
