Ubuntu: How to Unmount WIndows Partition Disk Permantely



Question:

I have dual OS (Windows 8 and Ubuntu), when I using Ubuntu, Windows partition Disks are automatically mounted in Explorer. I need to unmount permanently on every boot or permanently. I tried this in Gparted but when reboot it again mounted. Kindly Share your views.


Solution:1

If you want to do it nicely (i.e. really not mount the disks rather than mount them somewhere strange) it is a bit more complicated than what is suggested in the other answer. The best guide to follow is:

Hide your disks or partitions from Nautilus

I followed the guide just the other day and it worked well. Essentially you create a file /etc/udev/rules.d/99-hide-disks.rules in which you put the line

KERNEL=="sda1", ENV{UDISKS_PRESENTATION_HIDE}="1"  

where sda1 is the name of the partition you want to hide. In some systems (12.10?) it can also be

KERNEL=="sda1", ENV{UDISKS_IGNORE}="1"  

Then you reboot.


Solution:2

This is just a possible workaround: The issue seems to be you don't want it mounted, I am assuming because it mounts in a certain spot that you don't want?

In this case you could go into fstab and have it auto mount on boot in a completely different location.

/~/donttouchdrive/

Fstab info
