This latest version of the already excellent Automounter, v.1.5.10, is true of the no more prevalent Apple elegance. I readily accepted 'stale amounts' as a simple condition of having the best functioning remount app there be. But here comes Pixeleyes cleaning up their functionality. I have 4 shares and do have them show on my Desktop. Occasionally, upon waking from sleep, there would be duplicates of one or more, perfectly functional but a bit cluttered. Now it's those four, always. Nice.

For years I was happy with having networked drives (USB drives attached to AirportExtreme) mount as Login Items. My ISP changed and connectivity, while pretty dang good, has issues. Once unmounted I had the choice of either logging out/in or manually mounting the drives - both a pain in the you know what. Thus began a search for 3rd party solutions which ended with my being perfectly content with Automounter and impressed by developer support. I first tried some others, Remount and Mountain. I bought Remount and was ignorantly blissful until I tried it on my HighSierra machine. Not only is there no mention of the incompatibility (Macupdate or website) the developer was totally unresponsive. Mountain was doing OK but it's developer is likewise incommunicado. I then tried Automounter (sure wish they had a trial version but there is always a refund option from the MAS). Not only does Automounter do all I want it does it more elegantly and efficiently than the others. Only Automounter remounts your drives/shares after any type of interruption with NO action required by the user. Both Mountain and Remount require you to go into their GUI and initiate the remounting process. Mountain does at least offer a keystroke option for said action. Automount can be set to mount drives without any action by you, which is kinda the main point, right? Especially helpful are options for how drives mount (SMB, AFP, etc.), option to choose mount points, and the ability to have preset applications and/or files when a specified drive is mounted. Those latter two items require the additional purchase of 'Pro Settings'. The developer's prompt and kindly support was demonstrated a couple times over the first week. It was needed not due to issues with the application but because of my relative ignorance. I couldn't be happier. Does everything I want how I want.

Each time my MBP goes to sleep and wakes up it has lost connection to the Mac mini in the same network. Based on the name of this app I was under the impression that Auto Mounter would keep the connection alive (and automatically re-establish connection to the Mac mini in my case), but AutoMounter seems not able to do that or perhaps I don't understand the purpose of AutoMounter or I have configured it the wrong way.

Anyway make sure AutoMounter serves your purpose before purchasing (as with any app of course). AutoMounter is rock solid and its UI looks nice.

Hi there! Feel free to contact support@pixeleyes.co.nz so we can help. AutoMounter cannot prevent a share from being disconnected (sleeping a computer means the connection to your Mac Mini will be lost), however AutoMounter should always re-mount that share once you wake from sleep again.

I thought this would be just what I need to help my crashplan software connected to my server but there seems to be something different about the way that automounter mounts the shares as crash plan shows them as unavailable. If I mount them via the Automator script I created, crashplan sees them correctly. Anyone have any ideas what this is about?

Good call @Jlock, a trial would be great and I'd jump on this in a second if I could see how it performs as we have quite a few mounts that I'd like to use this with instead of traditional methods.

This is not possible in the App Store, very sorry about that. I'm confident it will work for you if you wish to auto mount your SMB/AFP/NFS shares. Apple offers the ability to refund your money if you are not satisfied, though please contact me for support first. Thanks!

Hi AndrewH9943,

You're able to develop and distribute a demo version of this application in the MAS. That is something that can be done. Another option would be that if you wanted to give us a trail version, I could list it on this listing as well. That way other users can try before they buy.
