I'm tagging USB and network drives in Mavericks, and I would like the tags to disappear from my Mac when the drives are disconnected. Is this possible?

  1. Disconnect the external drive.
  2. Navigate to Finder -> Preferences... -> Tags.
  3. Delete the desired tag. Confirm.
  4. Reconnect the external drive.
  5. The tag will reappear.
  6. Disconnect the external drive.
  7. The tag will disappear.

I'm curious if there's a more permanent solution, such as a way to create tags so that they're transient in the first place.
