    Hi all
    This is my first post here, forgive me if it's posted in the wrong area.

    I have a few external drives for my Macbook Pro. One of the drives is an Iomega MaxMini with USB ports on the back to add drives.

    My question is; when I hook up the drives to my laptop I get about 4 drive icons on the desktop for each of the partitions, and when I need to remove them I have to eject them or move them to the trash icon.
    Is there a way I can put the drives in a folder of some kind that I can just eject and make the desktop look less cluttered?

    Thanks in advance!

    -EBW :D

    Finder>Preferences>General

    Uncheck "External Disks" under "Show these items on the desktop"

    You can then open any Finder window and click the Eject symbol next to the drive.
