Volume Manager is a Mac OSX application used to organize, automate and monitor the mounting of Windows (SMB) and Apple volumes/shares/disks. Easy to use Mac app to admin the mounting of Windows (SMB) and Apple shares. Laptops can use Volume Manager to manually or automatically mount volumes at work and at home. Optional scheduling of mounting also monitor mount and remount of shares. Volume Manager can also be used to wake computers that are sleeping on an ethernet LAN.

Download to try free for 30 days. If you like the app you can subscribe monthly or yearly (includes 2 month discount) or buy the app outright to use it forever with no further charge.

If you need to mount disks from elsewhere on your network then Volume Manager can make your life easier. Volume Manager does just what its says, it holds a list of volumes (hard drives on other computers) with the necessary username and password and will automatically mount them whenever you want. Better still it watches and makes sure that they stay mounted if the network status changes.

Monitor Mounts

Volume Manager can keep an eye on a mount and if a server goes down (and the mount disappears) Volume Manager will remount the share when the server comes back online. However, for this to happen, you need to check the “Monitor this mount and keep it mounted” switch.

Schedule Mounts

Optional scheduling of mounting also monitor mount and remount of shares.

Windows Domains

Volume Manager can mount Windows shares when the username is local to the server doing the sharing but Volume Manager does not support DOMAIN Server authentication at this time. We are currently working on Active Directory and Domain Server authentication. Again, this doesn’t affect regular non-DOMAIN Windows mounts.

Mac OS X Technologies

- Volume Manager uses Bonjour to make mounting a local volume easy.

- Volume Manager can be setup to use one global user and password for all volumes.

- Volume Manager can wake up computers on a LAN.

not all functions here

The app store version doesn't have the feature of mounting to a different mount point other than /Volumes working. The version directly from the developer does.
Works well once you get the hang of it. Has a couple little quirks that you can figure out pretty quickly.

Filling the voids of what Apple should be doing

This app truly fills in a missing chunk of Mac OS that should have been there 20 years ago. Mac OS does a very poor job of managing network file shares, especially on portables going to sleep, waking up, changing locations/networks, changing from public to internal wifi, etc and this app does a great job of making network drive shares work far better.

The application seems to fail to launch at startup, though. Checking the "login at startup" option in the settings tab is unchecked after reboot or restarting the application. Running Mac OS 13.4.1

No Frills, Just works

I purchased this to replace AutoMounter. There were issues with AutoMounter getting stuck connecting drives, especially when changing networks (home, work, etc) and the only way to fix it was to reboot the computer!

This App looks very plain, and the setup process could be improved (adding a duplicate function), but it works flawlessly. I love that you don't have to do anything special to connect the drives to the /Volume folder. The drives mount when logging in, and remount if the network drops.
