Drives appear in the sidebar of Finder windows, but I would like them to appear in the dock (as well), with a way to easily eject them. Is there a setting or other technique to make this possible?

  • You can show then directly on the desktop. Would that do?

    Another suggestion: drag the /Volumes folder to the Dock

  • @Redarm nice idea, but unfortunately that doesn't give an easy way to eject the drives. Jul 21 at 11:27
  • @PatrickSanan If displayed as "Fan", or "Grid", the volume can be dragged to the trash to be ejected.

Prior to macOS Catalina, you can add a Recent Volumes stack to your Dock.

  1. Add the ‘recents-tile’.

    defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-others -array-add '{ "tile-data" = {"list-type" = 1; }; "tile-type" = "recents-tile";}' && killall Dock
  2. Right-click the ‘Recent *’ stack and set it to show ‘Recent Volumes’.

In macOS Catalina, this functionality was removed: Catalina recent items stack in dock no longer working.
