Drive Mounty V1.0.0 – Mac OS X app is now available from the Mac App Store



Drive Mounty – Keep your network drives connected!

Drive Mounty is an essential tool for anyone using network drives (i.e. NAS):

  • Add a network drive for monitoring.
  • Drive Mounty will automatically try to reconnect it when it disappears (such as when installing an update).
  • Once the network drive is available, Drive Mounty will remount it!


  • Simple to use interface.
  • Integrated with Notification Centre to keep track of events and allow you to monitor what has happened.
  • Ability to set connection attempt limits or have it keep trying forever!
  • Once the network drive is configured (with username and password stored to the keychain), no user input is required.
  • Autonomous mode – Drive Mounty can be configured to run on startup and minimised so it doesn’t get in your way whilst it’s keeping an eye on your network drives.
  • Unlimited number of network drives can be monitored (requires in-app purchase).

Please note: This version (without the one-time in-app purchase) will only allow you to monitor one network drive and once a drive has been reconnected it will stop monitoring. This version is free to allow you to evaluate the app features.

  1. I just bought this app, but I get the information: disconnected- reconnecting, but no drive showing up. I also miss a help file with how to setup and the meaning of for ‘home network mode’. I am using a mac with Catalina. Can you help? My NAS and shares are already visible in Finder.

    • Hi Jos, thx for purchasing the app! When you opened it for the first time, you should have been able to browse and select a mount that you wish to monitor. Did you do this? You can disable monitoring and remove any monitored mounts to remove this loop. With regards to home network mode, this enables you to set the app to only monitor the mounts you’ve specified when you’re on your home network (via up address). This will stop the app from searching when you’re away from your home network. Hope this helps. Thx.

      • Hi Garry, I tried everything, even afp and later smb protocols seperately, but the same errors occur. Sometimes I get the first drive/share with the name ‘Data’ working properly but the second one with the name ‘Downloads’ is giving the monitored notification: ‘Volumes/downloads disconnected – attempting to reconnect’. But I did disable the Monitoring before. I also removed the drivers in the drive mounty window, quit the application and started again. But the same results, getting frustrated…

      • Hmm so is the drive unmounted or is it actually there but the app thinks it’s dropped? I’ll need to test this out on Catalina as I’ve not had the chance to do so yet. When you add the drives are they reported as connected or something else?

      • Hi,

        Did everything again, stopped your app and then rebooted.
        Put the two drives in the app window, logged out and in.
        Nothing happens, only the notification as mentioned before.

        Do you known that apple is not supporting 32 bit apps anymore in Catalina?

        Regards, Jos.

      • Hi Jos, ok I will check this out. The app is 64bit so not an issue (32bit apps won’t run on Catalina). When you say “put the 2 drives in the app window” do you mean that you added them (via the button) or dragged them into the window?

      • Hi Jos, I’ve just tested the app on Catalina with an afp mount. Added the device and it showed as connected. I manually ejected the device and got the disconnect notification. It attempted the reconnect and the device was remounted and the connected notification was displayed. My laptop was on WiFi and device was wired to the network. Home network mode was disabled.

      • Hi Garry,

        I started all over again, this after an minor update for Catalina. But no results again, nothing happens (drives don’t appear). If I click on the drive mounty icon in the lower bar, the drive mounty screen opens and it shows for both drives: ‘disconnected – reconnecting’

        So, no solution yet.

        Gr. Jos

      • Garry, perhaps should I remove Drive mounty, and install again?
        I can remove it with Macbooster, or your manual, you let me know?

  2. Hi Garry, It doesn’t seems to work in my situation and I don’t hear from you anymore. Is it possible to get my money back. Thanks for all your efforts so far to help me! I guess it’s just my Mac.

    • Hi Jos, sorry I did respond but I agree, there’s obviously something that’s not working but I can’t replicate it to fix it. No problem at all with a refund, you’ll need to request through the App Store though as all payment is taken there. Thx for persisting with trying to find a resolution.

  3. Good morning, having trouble with the app.
    Have made groups but I when I type in the message it won’t send.
    Also won’t allow me to review the message.

    • Hi Chris, sorry to hear that. Is this once you’re taken to the iOS message window? One thing to check is that if you’re mixing iOS and Android recipients then you won’t be able to use emails for any of the recipients- the issue sounds like you’ve got invalid contact information for one or more of them. Let me know how you get on. 👍🏼
