    Or again you can right-click on it and select "Eject".

    Tried dragging it to trash (eject button) but would not work. Right clicked it to select "eject" but "eject" was not listed.

    Whoah! Have you run your maintenance scripts lately? Sounds like a good MainMenu cache cleaning is in order (specially the System's Deep Clean).

    I thought I saw somewhere that you just have to sign out of .Mac to be able to eject it. I saw it on YouTube.

    There should be a radio button or check box that is marked that says you want the iDisk drive mounted on your desktop. You should be able to unmark and it should disappear.

    I wonder why you can't unmount it easily. It's pretty quick for me.

    Do you keep the automatic syncing on? I found that was so bloody slow and inconvenient, I took it off ages ago. It would make my G4 iMac slow and unresponsive at times so I've always kept that feature off ever since then.
