    When I go to disk utilities I get `can't unmount disk' if I try to repair disk. NO apps are open and I'm booted to a different drive. I try unmount disk from with in the utility, still doesn't work. iTunes has become my enemy over the last upgrade or so. Everything changed and I can't easily find my tunes anymore.

    Plus, I always get "your itunes store session has expired. I think I've been there twice. I dislike being railroaded to buy their stuff. There is also a problem with my apple ID.

    Right now I'd just be happy to unmount the disk. Isn't there a force quit-like button somewhere?

    If all you need is just unmount the disk. Why not shut it down and physically remove the drive?

    Anyway, did you try recovery partition? You may repair a disk at there. Or re-install the OS sometimes can fix the issue (install on top of the current one, not clean install).

    Thanks for taking the time, I was trying to check and repair the HD so removing it may not be the solution unless it goes back to normal on reinstall.

    I'll try the recovery partition
