Automatically delete Mac OS X dot files from MS-DOS filesystems
Authored by: DFW-Patrick on Feb 15, '11 12:31:52PM

I made a mistake in the steps, and it seems I incorrectly renamed umount-original. I can't find the file in sbin. It's gone, and when I do a Search, it's gone as well. Now, I an unable to unmount disks, and it says they are still in use. Is there a way to restore it?

Just so other readers know, you emailed me about this and you ended up doing an "Archive and Install" from the OS DVD.

Other possible solutions:

1. Use "sudo -s" and "history" commands in Terminal.app to find out where you copied the umount program to, then copy it back.

2. Copy umount from another computer with similar architecture and OS version.
