Problem connecting to server after upgrading to OS X 10.7

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I get the following error message when I try to launch a few applications like Dropbox and TimeMachine after upgrading to OS X 10.7. What is the problem with these files that is preventing them from connecting to server? I tried installing and uninstalling a couple of times. But this did nothing to improve my situation. Did anyone else face a similar problem after upgrading? And what are the applications using URLs with type “nwnode”. Am I likely to face the same problem with any other application I’m likely to use? Please advice. I have no idea regarding the cause of this error. Hope some of you experts out there can help me. Thanks in advance.

URLs with the type “nwnode.” Are not supported.

Try this method and then see if it works. On your desktop, go to Finder and then double-click your hard drive. Open the folder called “System”, “Library”, and then “Filesystems”. Find the folder called “URLMount” and copy it to your desktop as a backup copy in case something goes wrong it can be restored.

After backing up the folder, go back to the folder “URLMount” in your hard drive, control-click it and then select “Move to Trash”. In case you are prompted, enter your administrator username and password to continue. Once this is done, restart your computer. See if this fixes the problem. Normally, this error is triggered when there is an application that uses Python symbol mappings on Mac OS X that can’t connect to a previously connected network drive, program like Time Machine, and others.

Actually, even if you are not using Time Machine as long as your application is using Python like with Dropbox this error can happen.
