Mountain allows you to manage mounted storage drives from the menu bar.

You can mount, unmount, or eject volumes with two single clicks. Unmount a single volumes or eject all external volumes at once, or automatically unmount external volumes when the system goes to sleep. Unmounted volumes will be spun down and can either be unplugged or reactivated in Mountain without the need to unplug the USB cable and plug it back in.

A list of recent server volumes provides easy access to network shares than can be re-mounted with a single click.

Very nice utility. It would be good if somehow you could just get version 1.46 directly. Now the only way to get Mountain is via the App store, where it is 1.02. Despite what is said below, the web site has no information about upgrading to 1.46.

First - developers get five starts for responsiveness. Had a problem with gremlin setting and had an answer in less than 5 hours (adjusted for time zone diffs)

Does exactly what it says it does - solves challenge of multiple externals and sleeping; no more messing with plugs and ports. Configurable function keys handy.

Good companion to TinkerTool System App, which I use, depending on what I'm working on, to keep certain external drives from starting up when a boot/reboot is unavoidable.

Oh - 4 externals of varying size plus MacBook's internal.

I always had trouble with my camera SD/CF cards: I used to pull them out before they where completely unmounted. Thanks to the nifty notifications of Mountain.app, I see right on screen when I can safely unplug a CF/SD card or other device. I also use it to eject some of my external harddrives, which otherwise do keep spinning and make quite some noies. Should be integrated right into the Mac OS. Great App!

Didn´t help me with my "Matshita drive/ Finder is not mounting some DVDs" problem. I was hoping that this app could mount or reactivate the volume - or at least eject it. Nothing. All other small options are not really worth a payment.

I've tried a whole bunch of menu bar ejecting apps, and Mountain is my favourite. I particularly like the ability to remount volumes, as Mountain has been able to remount volumes that even Disk Utility couldn't see.

Other things I like include notifications that when clicked will open the volume in the file manager I specify (in my case, I've chosen to use Path Finder), a skinny icon that doesn't take up too much space in my menu bar and dims when there are no external volumes mounted, and system-wide hotkeys.

I am still using Jettison in combination with Mountain, as Mountain doesn't yet auto-eject volumes on sleep (it can do it manually, and it can auto-mount volumes on wake from sleep). I contacted the dev to request this feature, and he says he has developed the feature, but wasn't satisfied with it as he could not figure out a way to notify users in case something when wrong when unmounting volumes. He says he will continue working on the feature, and I hope he is able to implement it as I would then have no need to use Jettison.

Mountain is now at version 1.4. Anyone who bought the Mac App Store version can overwrite it with the latest version downloaded direct from the dev, and that version will automatically update when new versions are available. See http://appgineers.de/mountain/migrate.html for details.

Mountain allows you to manage mounted storage drives from the menu bar.

You can mount, unmount, or eject volumes with two single clicks. Unmount a single volumes or eject all external volumes at once, or automatically unmount external volumes when the system goes to sleep. Unmounted volumes will be spun down and can either be unplugged or reactivated in Mountain without the need to unplug the USB cable and plug it back in.

A list of recent server volumes provides easy access to network shares than can be re-mounted with a single click.

Mountain identifies applications that block volumes from being ejected and allows you to quit them right away.

Optionally Mountain will notify you whenever a volume becomes available or an external device can be unplugged safely. A click on the notification will open the volume in Finder. The menu-bar icon will indicate if external volumes are connected or if you are clear to unplug all device cables including network connections.

Global hotkeys provide fast access to unmount and mount all external volumes at once.
