    Default AppleScript to mount network drive at log on.

    Hey Guys, I created a network drive to use as a Time Machine, however I need a script to mount the drive at log on. Can anyone help me with that?

    I use an app called Drive Mounter:


    Since I purchased the app, they’ve released a free version, too:

    I have installed Drive Mounter but it will not open a share(s) on a NAS e.g. smb://admin@NAS._smb._tcp.local/Apple. There are no messages I can see and nothing happens after a Restart or clicking 'Connect drives on list'.
    Using 'Go', 'Connect to Server', it mounts the share (and I have the option set to display an icon on the desktop) as expected.

    I got in touch with Drive Mounter and they suggested I changed smd to cifs.
    So I changed:
    smb://admin@NAS._smb._tcp.local/Apple
    to
    cifs://admin@NAS._smb._tcp.local/Apple
    and it now works. Note, changing the second occurrence of smb did not work and I don't know enough to explain why.
