Re: Don't automount MorphOS volumes?

Ah yes, the dismount command - forgot about that one. Good point.

But I would at least try first without the FORCE.

From "help dismount":

---8<---
    
FORCE
        Attempt to remove the file system device data from memory even
        
if the file system itself is unwilling to goThis is a
        potentially dangerous option 
and should be used only as a last
        resort when everything 
else has failedNote that this option
        may not succeed in cleaning up all the resources the file system
        may still be using
.

If you haven't used the volume at all - because you're doing it right from the startup - I would expect it to dismount willingly, which is probably a safer situation.

BTW, the old, unsafe dismount option was removed from assign because the safer and better current functionality was created as a separate command.

This also makes more sense logically (what does dismounting have to do with assigns?).

Best regards,

Niels
