Hi there.
Is there a cmd line entry I can put into a simple batch file to dismount a USB HD
on a server.

basicly, I'm going to backup to alternate USB Hard Drives & I want to schedule
a dismount/disconnect on that USB hard drive, so someone can swap the USB HD without having to login & disconnect("safely remove..) in the usual way.
I'd also the the USB drive un-mounted AFTER the backup, just in case.......

cheers

Is this Linux or Windows we are talking here being a server?

oops, SBS2003 (win)

also want to use it on single user Win PC's , for where the user just has too few skills (ie hopeless or lazy) to learn to disconnect USB backup drives correctly.
Cheers
