I have an iMac with connected USB drive(s). I’d like to access these connected drives from my MacBook Air over my home network. Using the MacBook I can connect to folders on the iMac internal drive but can’t seem to connect to the usb drives. “go to server” shows the external drive folders and it even asks me which folders I want to mount, but then it fails.
I want to access files over the network so I don’t have to unplug the usb drives from the iMac and plug them into the MacBook to work with them. I have a Synology NAS, iCloud, (and Dropbox & OneDrive because of work) so there’s plenty of workarounds available but I already have the usb drives so I may as well use them as a tertiary backup, etc until they die.
