Mount and unmount external drives easily via AppleScript
Authored by: The Eck on Feb 13, '12 05:02:34PM

Nice little script, however it seems like others have this base covered: the free iMount and MountnuoM available on MacUpdate; FreeSpace Tab, QuickDisk, and several others on the MAS.

BTW, on MacUpdate, there is also Semulov (Volumes <--- Semulov: quite clever...), which (un)mounts both local and network drives.

Thanks, I was not aware of these apps. However, iMount and MountnuoM don't have a menu item or a keyboard shortcut to mount a specific volume, and FreeSpace Tab, QuickDisk and Semulov can't mount unmounted volumes.

I haven't yet tried the other apps, but Semulov can definitely mount unmounted local volumes: there is an option in the preferences for showing unmounted volumes (and it even shows the Lion Recovery HD!); however, it doesn't seem to remember unmounted network volumes.

My mistake, sorry! I didn't notice that option.
