Unmount a volume (on login) via AppleScript
Authored by: pgaulrapp on Feb 23, '06 08:14:06AM

You can prevent it from ever mounting in a managed user's account.

From an admin account, get info on the volume and show details for Ownership and Permissions. In the "Owner" popup menu, make sure you are the owner. Changing the ownership to yourself won't hurt anything as long as it's not the boot volume (in my experience). In the "Others" popup menu, choose "None". After this, close the info window and reboot into the managed account. The volume shouldn't mount.
