Is there any way to hide a shared network drive in Finder? I don't want to hide all shared drives, just one. I am using an NAS server for backup purposes and I don't want users to be able see or eject the drive in Finder. I know how to hide mounted network shares with chflags, but I want to hide the drive too.

The only way I found so far is to map the share manually to /Volumes/.hiddensharename.

  • Is this still the case? I'm having a similar issue.
