Many thanx to the developer. This little app adds the much needed ability to eject all external devices in one shot. You can do it via terminal, but ejecting via a hotkey is a great solution. Now I can quickly eject all external devices before sleeping my machine to take on the road. Thanx

I like it. If you don't want to have your desktop cluttered with external drives, mounted volumes, USB Sticks etc. but still need some place other than the Finder to get an overview and to easily eject them, this is the app. I really like that mounted disk volumes are separated from drives by a thin line. And that they are order by their disk/partition number, not alphabetically. Very nice! Plus it seems to work fine with Lion (unlike Semulov at this time). But I have a small wishlist:

#1 Could you please add an option to have the total number of mounted volumes/drives shown right next to the menu bar icon (like in Semulov). That would be so helpful! That's my biggest wish.

#2 And if you have time, I'd also appreciate an option to switch to bigger icons (like in Volumizer).

Thank you.

Whenever I eject all volumes via this utility, my Spotlight index is erased. What's up with that?

If Command + E is too much for you, just add OS X's built-in Eject menubar widget to the menubar - it's located in "System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/" then just double click the Eject.menu to have it permanently live in the menu bar. There's a whole bunch of menubar widgets in that folder, you should take a look at them.

OS X's Eject menu extra ejects only optical drives. This utility lists all mounted volumes and lets you eject any (or all) without having to switch to the Finder and locate the volume you want to unmount. If you have a good number of mounted volumes, it can be a nice time saver.

Useless. If you have to eject something, you can use the finder or others.

Actually Snow Leopard 10.62 has broken the function keys such as Sound / Eject buttons so this little app is a God-send!

How is the keyboard command so many fewer clicks and less time?????

While the keyboard shortcut (cmd+e) is quick and easy, you are forgetting the other steps involved...

1a. get to the desktop
-press F11, or mouse to the desktop
1b. get to a finder window
-select the finder icon in the dock
2. select the item you want to eject
3. go back to the keyboard and press cmd+e


1. go to the menu bar with mouse
2. select icon within ejector menu using mouse
3. eject the drive

Either option could be faster than the other depending on your situation.

If you want to take a simple operation with a simple and easy to remember keyboard shortcut (Command-E (Eject)) and turn it into a time consuming operation with many mouse movements and clicks, and, adds yet another icon to your menu bar then this is your type of app.

My advice - learn the keyboard shortcuts that are built into the OS before installing software that duplicates existing functionality.

just use the eject menu that you can enable with tinkertool or mac pilot or something.

Under Tiger, I have had to try to eject twice before it works. No such problem under Panther. Otherwise, very convenient little program.
