    maybe a script could be written to do that and then bound to the key... is a clever idea for sure man, i quite like the idea myself.

    I e-mailed the maker behind keyremap4macbook lets see what he says but I would love to see if someone else could make this happen. I was thinking for people with dual partitions if its possible to combine eject key+1/eject key+2 to eject +remount the corresponding(first/second/so on) partitions which would be amazing since the location of the drive physically on the controller doesn't change nor does the location of the partitions unlike external drives.

    Hmm I'll send him a message as well....I have a few friends that know code pretty well and two guys who have some seriously impressive connections...no clue if I can get them on the band wagon but both use MacBook Pro's with dual hard drives :D :D I'd like it to function both ways though...eject AND mount...

    He replied saying this, I tried making the application but because this is my first OSX computer I hav no clue what I'm doing with coding......even that simple command i can't seem to put into action.....if someone could figure this out and simplify it more that would be amazing for everyone:)


    "Hi,

    You can do that by following steps.

    (step1)
    Make your own Application which mount/unmount disk by Automator.
    You can mount/unmount disk by diskutil command.
    So, launch Automator.app and choose "Application".
    Then, choose "Run Shell Script" and input following text.
    (replace XXX to your HDD's volume name.
    replace "unmount" to "mount" if you want to mount volume.)

    ------------------------------------------------------------
    diskutil unmount XXX
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Then, save this as app.
    You can mount/unmount volume by this application.


    (step2)
    Change Eject behavior.
    Use this private.xml.
    This change Eject+1 to Command+1, Eject+2 to Command+2,...
    https://github.com/tekezo/Files/blo...ok/private.eject_to_sticky_extra1/private.xml


    (step3)
    Assign shortcut to your own apps.
    (assign Command+1 to launch your own app.)
    Use Spark or Quicksilver or other apps which assign shortcut to apps.
