  • With the AppleScript to unmount a disk, what is the correct syntax when your disk has a space in it, such as iMac Clone Backup? Or is the simpler answer just to rename the disk so it doesn’t have any spaces in it.

    1. Great question, Dan and it’s really not a huge issue, you just need to “escape” the space with two backslashes. Here is my known-to-be-working-because-it’s-on-my-main-macMini script. The name of the drive is “Filles De Kilimanjaro-Clone” (yes, another Miles Davis tune):

      delay 15
      try
      do shell script “diskutil unmount /Volumes/Filles\\ De\\ Kilimanjaro-Clone/”
      end try
