Mountain

1.6.6
03 September 2018

Manage mounted storage drives from the menu bar.

Overview

Mountain allows you to manage volumes with ease. It allows you to mount, unmount, or eject volumes with only two clicks. Unmount a single volumes or eject all external volumes at once. 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.

  • Automatically unmount external volumes when the system goes to sleep and remount them on wake up.
  • Remount recent network shares with a single click or remount them automatically on boot up or wake from sleep.
  • Prevent external volumes from being mounted upon connection.
  • Prevent volumes from being ejected.
  • Identify applications that block volumes from being ejected and quit them right away.
  • Get notified 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 Mountain menu bar icon will indicate if external volumes are connected or if you are clear to unplug all device cables including network connections.
  • Speed up ejecting and mounting of all external volumes at once using global hotkeys.

I love Mountain's unobtrusive notification of when it's safe to disconnect my backup drive. Saved me from corrupting it many times.

Kudos for providing a trial. Unfortunately, for me, it lacks the function of showing which drive the volumes are on, as Disk Utility does. I have a lot of external drives that I use for maintaining a variety of OS X systems. Sometimes I loose track of which drive the partitions are on, so I launch Disk Utility to see my drive hierarchy. Mountain does not do this. So for me it's a no sale. Still, I give it high marks for doing what it says it can do.

I've been using this app for around a year to mount, unmount and remount my external drives (storage and backup) and volumes. Works great, no complaints, very fair price.

This nice little App does everything it claims to do, silently, in the background.
I have been using it for about a month now and find it exceptionally useful. It auto-remounts my flash card drive, network drives, and notifies me of disk image (*.dmg) status.
All for 6 bucks; its just brilliant!

I've enjoyed using this app in the past…unfortunately, it doesn't look like it's being updated or supported anymore. I've been trying to reach the developer for months and have heard that there are issues using it with macOS Sierra.

I really like this app, but since upgrading to Sierra one thing has been driving me nuts. Mountain displays app translocation volumes. (these appear when Gatekeeper makes apps run from a random path for security reasons). I get this with BetterTouchTool and SteerMouse. It prevents me from using Mountain to eject all drives at once, as I don't want to eject the translocation volumes, so I have to eject each disk one-by-one. I don't even want to see the translocation volumes, but there's no option to hide a volume. I wrote to the dev several weeks ago about this but never heard back, which makes me wonder if Mountain is still being supported. I hope so, as I have come to depend on it, and no other similar app offers the features that Mountain has.

Unfortunately, Mountain does not work with external drives that have been encrypted with FileVault, which greatly reduces its usefulness. More specifically, you can unmount such a volume with Mountain, but mounting that volume again does not work unless you do it right after you unmounted it and before it is locked by the OS. Since you really don't want someone who brakes into your home have access to your files, you should encrypt all your drives with FileVault, especially considering how easy this is to do with macOS. Hopefully, Mountain will support encrypted partitions soon, so you don't have to choose between security and convenience.

Excellent App! I have a multitude of drives attached to my iMac and they were seriously affecting the performance. Boot up, Login and general use is much snappier now that my computer is not labouring away with all those hangers-on. I now only mount each drive as and when needed. A full five stars for this brilliant little app, well worth the cost!

I've tried several similar apps, and I prefer Mountain. I use a rMBP with an external display and am plugging in and unplugging daily. Mountain confirms that every connected drive has been unmounted before I unplug. I also use it with a Mac Mini that has several drives connected permanently, and Mountain prevents them from being accidentally unmounted. Additional features I like is quick access to connected volumes and drives, the ability to unmount several volumes or drives with a single click, the ability to hide notifications for certain volumes/drives, and the ability to remount volumes/drives/servers. It's become an indispensable app that I can't do without.

I've been meaning to leave a rating for Mountain for some time now... This app is a quiet unobtrusive utility that resides in the menubar and is excellent at what it does: lets you quickly mount or unmount drives of any sort that are connected to your Mac. I've been using it at least once a week for some time and couldn't be without it. The dev is extremely quick and helpful in responding to the few questions I've had (no problems, just questions). I'm happy to support indie devs like Appgineers.

You need an app running 24/7 in your menu bar when you only use it once a week or so?

Is it really that difficult to switch to finder for 15 seconds once or twice a week?

I've tried the app in the past but there was something I didn't like about it so I uninstalled it. But I have a lot of disks and mount/unmount a few daily.

Très bonne application que j'utilise depuis longtemps. Simple et efficace qui la rend ensuite indispensable. Le Support répond également très rapidement si il y a un problème (rare dans mon cas) !

Excellent app, and very easy to use. Also the creator of the application responds in the day at the slightest problem. As of late, the disappearance of the recording. Fast, and return to normal operation. Bravos
