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:

  • You can now use unmodified function keys as keyboard shortcuts in Jettison.
  • Fixed ejecting of encrypted sparsebundle disk images so they're correctly locked after being ejected.
  • Correctly handle situations where the system erroneously reports that a drive failed to eject even after successfully ejecting it.
  • Fixed a bug that could result in Jettison's icon disappearing from the menu bar even though it was still running (and working).
  • Eliminated a hang that could occur if Jettison tried to eject a disk with the same name as your system drive and the eject failed.
  • Fixed an error that could cause Jettison to hang if it couldn't determine the name of your Time Machine backup drive.

What is new in version 1.5.3:

  • Fixed a crash that occurred when ejecting drives under certain circumstances.
  • Eliminated a crash that could happen with drives that have unnamed partitions.
  • Added the ability to save debug logs to help in diagnosing problems.
  • Corrected a graphics glitch.

What is new in version 1.4.3:

  • 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. (
