Prevent a given partition from mounting at boot
Authored by: 500F on Sep 01, '11 09:53:00AM


I have tried those suggestions previous to last one posted.
Being that I'm in Lion, I think that's why they didn't work.

I have 2 questions:

1-From those attempts, there were created 3 files in "etc" folder:,, and
Will it be safe to delete those files being that they only contain what I wrote in my 3 attempts?
-UUID=E095D3F5-F170-3D34-8A52-7DD6EB5530E2 none hfs rw,noauto
-UUID=E095D3F5-F170-3D34-8A52-7DD6EB5530E2 none ntfs ro,noauto 0 0


If I create a new file fstab in the folder "private" and no in "private/etc" as per last update (UUID=XXX-XXX-XXX-XXX-XXX none hfs rw,no auto),

2-Will the command work to avoid an iPod to mount when I start the machine?

Thank you,
