I have Time Capsule with folder(drive?) Data. I didn't create this folder(drive?), it was already there when I have bought it. I store books, music and films in this folder.

If I understand correctly when I reboot my Macbook and click on Time Capsule - Data on Finder, OSX mount this folder(drive?) to /Volumes folder.

Here is my /Volume:

# demas at MacBook-Air-demas.local in /Volumes [9:50:28]
$ ls -la
total 8
drwxrwxrwt@ 24 root   admin   816 Nov 16 09:49 .

drwxr-xr-x+  3 root   admin   102 Oct 27 09:31 Data-18

As I see OSX create a new folder in /Volumes every time I want to mount the folder in my TimeCapsule. How can I fix it? How can I set one folder to mount Data folder(drive?) in my Time Capsule ?

Update

$ ls -la /Volumes/Data-7

  • Output of ls -le on /Volumes/Data-18?? Wondering if those entries actually contain anything.. – douggro Nov 17 '14 at 2:56
  • I have updated my question – demas Nov 17 '14 at 5:10
  • Hmm.. and with all those entries in /Volumes are they all mounted or is there just one "Data" mountpoint and the same showing from the TimeCapsule? – douggro Nov 17 '14 at 15:27
  • Only one mount point on the time. But if I reboot, OSX create a new folder in /Volumes every to mount the folder in my TimeCapsule. – demas Nov 17 '14 at 15:30
  • If you have the Data folder in your Login Items, remove it and turn off Time Machine. Reboot and check /Volumes again. – douggro Nov 17 '14 at 15:44
