Applescript -hiding desktop drive icons
I've had success with a couple of Applescript scripts in hiding hard drive icons on the Finder desktop that I don't need to access (the Mac Pro uses them for backup and cache purposes):
Hiding the drive icon
quit application "Finder" tell application "System Events" to ¬ set visible of disk "BACKUP DRIVE" to false delay 1 launch application "Finder"
Making the drive visible again
quit application "Finder" tell application "System Events" to ¬ set visible of disk "BACKUP DRIVE" to true delay 1 launch application "Finder"
I'm using OSX 10.6.8.

Thanks. I tried the Terminal suggestion there and the result was the same as with my Applescript, but.... unlike Applescript it gave me an error message: "Permission denied".
So I tried adding myself as a new user for the drive, enabling read/write" and then it worked.
Thanks for heading me in the right direction. I'll have to figure out the correct ownership for my drives.
