The Mount Tray application is used to facilitate the mounting and unmounting of USB storage devices.

In this example, a USB thumb drive was inserted and detected while logged into the KDE desktop. Click the "Mount" button next to the "USB DISK" entry to mount that device. As the device mounts, the "Mount" button will change to an "Eject" button and the contents of the drive will be displayed in the default file manager for the desktop. A list of available file managers can be found on the [[Files and File Sharing#File Managers and File Structure|Files and File Sharing page]].
  
In this example, an external USB hard drive was inserted while logged into the KDE desktop and detected by its serial number "48957b6764472bdb". The mouse was hovered over that entry in order to see the two possible actions: to "Mount da0s1" which makes the drive accessible for this login session or to "Auto-mount" which will make the drive accessible for this login session and will also automatically make the drive accessible the next time it is plugged in. If you click either option, a pop-up message will indicate that the drive is mounted. If the desktop has a default file manager, it will open with the contents of the device displayed. In this example, the dolphin file manager opens as it is the default KDE file manager. If the desktop does not provide a default file manager, Mount Tray will provide an "open with" dialogue so that you can select the utility to use to browse the contents of the USB device.

Mount Tray also detects any partitions of internal drives not being used by PC-BSD. In the example shown in Figure 8.10a, this system is dual booting with Windows 7 on a Lenovo laptop. Windows 7 uses three partitions: one for the system drive, one for Lenovo recovery, and one containing the operating system. To access files on the Windows system, mount the partition labelled "Windows7_OS". [[PC-BSD® for Linux Users#Filesystems|Table 1.4a]] lists which filesystems are supported by PC-BSD's Mount Tray.

(Sorry for the inconvenience)

The Mount Tray application is used to facilitate the mounting and unmounting of filesystems and USB storage devices. It is included in the system tray, meaning that in can be used within any window manager that provides a system tray. If you remove the icon from the system tray, you can re-add it using Control PanelMount Tray or by opening an xterm and then typing pc-mounttray &.
Figure 8.11a: Mount Tray Example

To access the contents of a USB drive, insert the USB drive and click the "Mount Tray" icon in the system tray. You should see a screen similar to Figure 8.11a.

In this example, a USB thumb drive was inserted and detected while logged into the KDE desktop. Click the "Mount" button next to the "USB DISK" entry to mount that device. As the device mounts, the "Mount" button will change to an "Eject" button and the contents of the drive will be displayed in the default file manager for the desktop. A list of available file managers can be found on the Files and File Sharing page.

If the internal disk drives are partitioned with other filesystems, these will also appear in Mount Tray. Table 1.4a lists which filesystems are supported by Mount Tray.

When you are finished using the device or filesystem, click that entry's "Eject" button. A pop-up message will indicate that the device has been unmounted and that it is now safe to remove the device.

DANGER! Do NOT physically remove the device without unmounting it first.

Right-click Mount Tray to see the "More Options" menu which allows you to perform the following actions:

  • Open Media Directory: click this if the default file manager does not automatically open. If the desktop does not provide a default file manager, Mount Tray will provide an "open with" dialogue so that you can select the utility to use to browse the contents of the USB device.
  • View Disk Usage: in the example shown in Figure 8.11b, a UFS formatted USB device is mounted at /media/USB-Device. The amount of disk space used by the system hard drive and the USB drive is shown in both GB and as a percentage of available disk space. The mount tray will turn yellow if disk space is over 75% and red if disk space is over 90%.
  • Rescan Devices: click this option if an entry for the USB device does not automatically appear.
  • Load ISO File: used to mount an ISO to a memory disk. When the ISO is unmounted, the memory disk is also detached from the system.
  • Change Settings: as seen in Figure 8.11c, this screen allows you to configure how often Mount Tray checks the disk space used by mounted devices. Leave the checkbox checked if you would like it to automatically check disk space when a disk is mounted.
  • Close Tray: click this option to remove Mount Tray from the system tray.
