I've a problem with my MacBook Pro 2017 running macOS 10.12.6 Sierra: I cannot eject a remote disk that was mounted. No app is using the disk.

How can I eject the remote disk properly?

  • Have you tried diskutil unmountDisk force /Volumes/DISK_NAME? – bret7600 Oct 5 '17 at 14:31

    How do you try to eject it? What errors do you get? How did you verify that no application/process is using the disk? – nohillside Oct 5 '17 at 14:56
  • @bret7600 inside /Volumes I can find only Macintosh HD – yngabl Oct 5 '17 at 15:00
  • @patrix I selected the unit and then I pressed cmd+E. No error appeared. I just typed top on terminal and guessed what app can use the disk – yngabl Oct 5 '17 at 15:04

I just found the answer in the apple support, namely write the following

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.NetworkBrowser EnableODiskBrowsing -bool false

and then

killall Finder

To enable again just write true in place of false.
