Jettison 1.5.1

Jettison automatically ejects external disks from your Mac before your computer goes to sleep.

Simplify those last few seconds when you grab your MacBook and run out the door. Just close the lid and Jettison will automatically eject your backup drive, iPod, or whatever is connected so you can safely unplug it. Say goodbye to “disk was not ejected properly” errors and waking your computer back up because you forgot to eject everything.

Jettison even makes sure that Time Machine backups and file server volumes are properly shut down before they’re removed. Your backups and shared files are safe and sound.

And what if you decide not to leave, and open your MacBook back up? Jettison will check to see if your drives are still connected and will mount them back on the Desktop if they’re there.


Version 1.5.1:

  • Fixed a compatibility issue with macOS 10.12 Sierra
  • Added an option to unmount drives rather than eject them
  • Network drives are now recognized and handled correctly
  • Shortened the delay before Jettison remounts drives
  • Added a button to save error information when Jettison can't eject a disk
  • Jettison no longer uses display sleep as a criteria for ejecting disks
  • Bogus error codes returned by OS X are now ignored


OS X 10.6 or later
