Jettison eliminates the hassle of manually ejecting external drives before you put your MacBook to sleep.

With Jettison, you just close your MacBook, unplug and go!


"This software is a welcome utility! I can't count how many times I've closed my MacBook Pro lid and forgot to eject external drives first." - Marc Garneau

With Jettison

  1. Close your MacBook

Jettison will check to see if your drives are still connected and will mount them back on the Desktop automatically.


Technical Wisdom

Q: Why do I need to eject hard drives before unplugging them?

A: You risk losing data if you don’t. macOS doesn’t write information to the drive immediately - it often caches it to make operations faster. If you unplug a drive without first ejecting it, macOS may not have a chance to actually write that data to the drive!
