The web comes through again...

Hats off to the folks over at This is...OS X. I had a client who installed the latest Mac OS X 10.3.3 update, only to have the Finder hang every time she tried to access her hard disk. A quick search on Google lead me to their pages where, far down on the page, 2 sentences held the answer to my question.

It seems having a server alias in the Finder sidebar can cause the Finder to sit-and-spin endlessly. Logging in from another computer, we were able to access the disk and remove the ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.sidebarlists.plist. Another reboot and the client was back to work.

Thanks again to everyone at This is...OS X.
