View Full Version : Volume not unmounting

I have SD! scheduled to nightly do new and changed files to my Clone volume. The Clone volume is on an external drive with 2 partitions, partition1 is the clone drive, partition2 is another volume that I want always connected.

By modifying my fstab file I have my system setup so that when I boot into OS X, my clone partition1 doesn't mount, but the partition2 does mount.

What's is happening though is that SD! will mount my Clone partition to do the scheduled task, but then it doesn't unmount it, I have to do it manually, and it's kind of a pain because if I drop Clone into the Trash Bin, both partitions on the external FW drive unmount - I have to go into DiskUtility and unmount my Clone partition.

Any ideas why SD! is not unmounting my clone volume after the scheduled task?

Nothing offhand, no: if the volume isn't mounted when we start, we should mount/copy/unmount. No errors shown?

I don't see any errors like if a scheduled event fails and the window is there with the item in red. Is there a log file I should be checking?

I always keep my clone drive unmounted, but for some reason SD! is not unmounting it now - this is a new drive I started using for SD! as of a few weeks ago upgraded to a FW800 now that my new iMac has a FW800 port.

Does it work if you haven't modified your fstab, Randy?
