Unmount a volume (on login) via AppleScript
Authored by: claudio on Feb 23, '06 02:33:56PM

I tired that easy looking script over and over again - nothing happend on my system.
The scripteditors' event-protocol showed me no errors, but the drive remains on the desktop.
Sad but true.

That's weird. I just tried the script and it consistently works to unmount a volume on my server. Handy tool. Thanks!

If your volume is mounted as /Volumes/Volname try:

eject disk "Volname"

Using the full "/Volumes/Volname" pathname doesn't work.
