    I've set up an automator workflow/app to unmount 6 or 7 drives, leaving just 3 (of 9 or 10 total) when I boot up (login items). Some are internal, some are external.

    At the end of a day/session, I'd like to mount all drives at once, to perform backups/clones.

    I have iStat, I'm not using it at the moment - but I can mount drives from there, but it's one by one and not all at once. Same with Disk Utility.

    Is there an 'easy' way to mount all drives with one click? I can't seem to do it with an automator workflow.

    I haven't actually done this, but in theory the following should work. Put a series of mount terminal commands, one for each drive, into a script. Have Automator run the script.
