Jettison eliminates the hassle of manually ejecting external drives before you put your MacBook to sleep. Why do I need to eject hard drives before unplugging them? You risk losing data if you don't. OS X doesn't write information to the drive immediately - it often caches it to make operations faster. If you unplug a drive without first ejecting it, OS X may not have a chance to actually write that data to the drive. Jettison makes that sound to let you know that it couldn't eject one of your drives. We chose to use a sound because the lid on your MacBook may already be closed, so you might not see a regular error message. When you hear this sound, you'll have to open your computer back up and quit whatever application is using that drive so it can be ejected. With Jettison, you just close your MacBook, unplug and go.
What is new in this release:
- Added instructions in the preferences describing how to turn off notifications
- Fixed a bug that could cause Jettison to crash when your Mac wakes from sleep
- Fixed the "Deverrouiller" button when entering your license code in French so that it enables and disables itself correctly
- Fixed a bug that could eject the OS X installer disk image if you have "Eject external disks at restart and shutdown" turned on, making OS X upgrades fail to start
What is new in version 1.4.2:
Fixes detection of SD cards in Yosemite and improves both ejecting and remounting of drives. (
