Function Good, NAG WARE HORRIBLE otherwise
This functionality can easily be written as a action, but for a few $ it is better to buy this app. BUT, be aware that you should only get it if you like nag ware. This software advertises its pro version TOOOOOO MUCH —— It makes me want to remove the free version instead of opting for the pro version - I probably will get rid of this because I am just being lazy about setting up an action on wakeup. Yeah, I think I will get that working — maybe 20 minutes instead of accepting nag ware vendors’ software.
sometimes it works sometimes not
One thing that it does well is that once the NAS drives are mounted to desktop they stay mounted. Sometimes this app does not always automatically mount my drives. My NAS drive is partitioned and one partition always mounts, the other one sometimes not.
Used to work...
I was surprised with how useful this application used to be - enough to pony up for the paid version. Then all of a sudden, about 2 weeks ago, it stopped consistently mounting drives. I now have to go in an mount all the diferent shares on my NAS manually as before. Maybe there will be an update soon, but I won’t buy the paid version until this free version gains some consistency.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
