View Full Version : Eject Icons

07-02-2009, 01:13 PM
Thought of adding this to thread-
Unable to unmount primary OS drive when booted to external firewire drive backup.
but I think it need to be separate.

I clone my HD onto an external HD, with partitions.
Occasionally, when I'm done, I notice that-

There are no 'eject' icons, with the partition symbols in the Finder Sidebar

I can eject the drive(s) by dragging the desktop icons to the trash,
but my local Mac User group didn't think it was a Mac thing.
Also, my other externals (HDs and Flash Cards), when mounted,
always produce an icon & eject symbol, in the finder side bar.

Any ideas?

I think that OS X only puts eject symbols by non-startup, external (or network) volumes. Internal drives don't get them.
