I'm trying to figure out why one of my drives is appearing multiple times in the Finder sidebar.
If I drag the list order a new one is generated. Dragging out to the desktop, the normal way of deleting them, fails; it simply reappears immediately in the sidebar.
From georgegarside blog - Mac Finder Sidebar Favourites Location I discovered the names & locations of the two files possibly responsible.
I tried throwing them away, but that was considerably more trouble than it was worth, as defaulting the Finder views entirely is just too much work to put back how I like it.
The .plist files themselves look pretty complex, so I'm trying to figure out what I can safely delete to see if will restore normailty.
