mac snow leopard can't remove disconnected share from finder list

freedom22 asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-08
1. I am using a new iMac running Snow Leopard to connect to a windows domain controller running Windows Server 2003 release 2. I have deleted one of the shares (and older computer) from the windows server, but the disconnected share is still showing up in the Mac Finder. How can I edit this list, or delete the disconnected server from the list?

2. When I first browse (using the finder) to a shared directory on my windows server, I can see the folders just fine. However, if I select another operation and then return to the finder
and click the shared drive a second time, the little circle keeps going around and I can never get to the folders. If I choose "Connect As" the circle just keeps going and I am not able to connect to the server. Anybody have an idea of what is going wrong, and how I fix it?

Thanks in advance,
