This code sample demonstrates several ways to unmount a volume. o Call MoreFiles and have it take its best shot. o Augment MoreFiles with a little Finder-style interface and some strategic trash-emptying. o Send an AppleEvent to Finder and have it do the whole thing. A real strategy might use all of the above depending on its context. The sample discusses which contexts might require which techniques. Requirements: System 7.0 Keywords: unmount, put away, Finder Apple Events, MoreFiles
