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.
