What can I check to clean up the unwanted SMB:// share folder????

Mac Air

Originally, I have 2 connections to smb://server/folder1 and smb://server/folder2.
which would connect when I logon. The settings are in SYSTEM PREFERENCE > USERS AND GROUP > LOGIN ITEMS

Recently, I noticed that I have 2 of the sharing folder1 on. the desktop of MAC AIR after I updated to "MOJAVE"
I undo all my share folders setting but there is still one smb://server/folder1 is still there.

It is a map drive from no where!
What can I check to clean it up????

Where are you seeing it?  In the sidebar?  Can you unmount the share?  Does it have an icon to eject?

Open Terminal.app and run the following commands
df -h

Do you see it in the list of either command?  If you do, try forcing an unmount.
hdiutil unmount /Volumes/folder1

Check the standard mount point in /Volumes/.  Is there a folder listed.
ls -l /Volumes/
Is there a folder there, even when the mount or df commands don't show it?  If there is, then
rmdir /Volumes/folder1

Turn off the computer and reset the SMC, then reset the PRAM when you start.

Reset SMC.
  • Turn off power.
  • Plug in power cord.
  • Press and hold left
  • shift control option
  • keys, then press and hold the power button.
  • Release.
Reset PRAM.
  • Turn on computer.
  • Press and hold
  • option command p r
  • .
  • Keep holding until you hear 3 chimes (or, on newer macs that no longer chime, until the apple logo appears 3 times or the screen flickers 3 times)

These are a start.  Maybe show screen shots if these don't help.

I’m wondering if you are just seeing a shortcut?  Are you sure what you are seeing is actually the shared folder?  

Serialband above said all the things I would have suggested. Please report back if all that unsuccessful.

A screen shot might help if unsuccessful.

Dear Owen & serial band

It is a mount point to a server. (See Mount Point)
I followed serial band's steps but I still getting nowhere. the mount point still come up.

The issue is where is the mounting instruction????????
I don't see it.
1. Not in Users & Group
2. Not in Find > Go > connect to server
3. Not the automator
4. fstab is not available for Mac anymore

Any idea?????
/etc/fstab is still available.  You may not have a current one.

You have something on /Volumes/HRADMIN/.  That means something is mounting it.  Is this the folder? Have you tried forcing the unmount?
hdiutil unmount /Volumes/HRADMIN

Also, please show the mount in your Finder window.
