    I'm running 10.5.2 on a MacbookPro. My internal disk is partitioned into two volumes "Macintosh HD" and "NO NAME" - I've got two external drives named "Audio Boot" and "Storage FW800".

    I've had some problems lately where applications think they have been moved from "Storage FW800" to "Storage FW800 1"

    In the terminal, when I look at the /Volumes folder, sure enough, all the drives are listed including a "Storage FW800" and a "Storage FW800 1". If I unmount all of the external drives I'm still left with "Storage FW800" showing in /Volumes

    I've tried to unmount it using umount and it says "Storage FW800 not mounted"

    How do I get rid of this bogus Volume?

    Thanks in advance!

    when i renamed one of my disks, applications that saved files on it created a folder in /Volumes with the original name. so i had the disk with the new name and a folder with the original name in which the apps where just recreating the files.

    what i did was set the applications to save the files on the actual disk with the new name and then move the files back from the originally named folder and deleted it.
