Er, I tried replacing "the-volume-name" with "OSX_silver_B", and I tried using 'eject' instead of 'diskutil unmount' -- I think they both gave compiling errors before I even got them into a script.

I noticed that the 'diskutil unmount' command does unmount my partitions when used in Terminal, so I played around with the following shell script, and sort of have it working as an executable Login item:


diskutil unmount /Volumes/OSX_silver_B
diskutil unmount /Volumes/OS9_silver_B
diskutil unmount /Volumes/Backups_silverB
diskutil unmount /Volumes/OSX_silver_RAID

Its a bit inelegant (leaves the Terminal window open). I sort of feel there must be a reason why people try to do this as an AppleScript.

Also I am wondering now if I really should explicitly define which partitions I want unmounting. Because, if I ever have to start up from a clone, I would rather mount the partitions on its disk and not mount those on the 'original' disk.
