I just reinstalled my Mac, thinking I'd give OS X Mountain Lion a try.
In my system, I have both a regular HDD with a partition
Storage and a SSD. On the SSD, I've installed OS X, and now transfered
/Users/kba (my home folder) to
/Volumes/Storage, so that the
Storage partition now is my home folder. For the most part, this works great.
However, after having done this, OS X now no longer recognizes
Storage as a partition — it won't allow it to show up on my Desktop next to my SSD
Macintosh HD. It no longer shows under Devices in the Finder sidebar either.
But worst of all, I can't seem to add it to the sidebar! When I go to
/Users and drag
kba to Favorites, it only stays there for a fraction of a second. Same thing happens if I check
Storage (Home folder) in the Finder Preferences:
Storage blinks, then disappears from the sidebar and takes the ✔ in the checkbox along as it goes.
