UNscheduled SD! runs? My main machine is PowerBook used at all sorts of hours doing all sorts of things. At least once a day I do manage to do a SmartUpdate to a dedicated external firewire drive. My preferred method is to have SD! do its update and then go to sleep. (I vascillate between weeks where I think I want it to sleep or quit or reboot.) Whichever I am doing I would always want the drive to be unmounted.

I have played some with the various discussions in the threads but never quite got it right. Today there is a post on MacOSXHints for doing just what I want. One replier says today's SD! update takes care of it. From what I can glean from the information here and in the release notes I think not.

I admit to not having downloaded the latest yet.

Thank you for the continued development.

Tim

No, Tim, it doesn't: it only works on scheduled runs.

However, if you follow the steps in the Maxtor OneTouch FAQ entry, and simply *run* the little program it generates, we'll mount, back up, and unmount for you...

As always, Dave ...

Thank you for the prompt reply and good information.
