In the past I had my network drive as a favorite in all Finder windows. Nowadays it doesn't work well.

When I connect manually CMD + K and type afp:// the NAS root will be directly added to my favorites. But when I restart and OSX mounts the NAS automatically I can't get it in my favorites bar.

I googled and tested a lot, but nothing works, regardless if it's a AFP oder SMB connection.

Any thoughts what's wrong?

(P.S. using Mountain Lion and iMac 2011)
