I used to have a NAS device on my network, but I've since gotten rid of it. Problem is, the server still shows up in my Finder sidebar and nothing I've done has removed it. It's driving me nuts that it's still there, so any help to remove it is greatly appreciated!!

I forget which - try holding down option or the command key while dragging it off the side bar.

I had the same problem with a Glims.dmg file that wouldn't go away. I had to right click on it and select "Remove from Sidebar".

Look what I found. <- Linky

Now what are the chances of this problem happening 3 times in the same week?

As I stated in my first post, I've already tried the normal fixes. I cannot drag the DiskStation out of the sidebar. I also cannot remove it in Finder preferences. Next tip??

What do you mean you can't remove it in Finder preferences?

Head there - Sidebar tab - uncheck everything under Shared.

I mean exactly that. Sure, I can hide it by unchecking the stuff under Shared in the Finder preferences, but that's putting a band-aid on it. I want to remove the shared network server completely and nothing I do will remove it. It doesn't exist anymore, the IP address doesn't even exist anymore.

If you still have the problem, this might work - worked for me.
Hold down Apple (Command) and Alt while dragging the folder from the sidebar to the desktop, then release it while still holding them down.
Hope this works!
