Select in the PopUpMenue 'volume' the desired volume. Enter the times for automatic unmounting and mounting volumes.* By selection of the checkbox 'all partitions' you determine whether all partitions of a drive or only the selected will be mountet/unmonted. (with drives with only one partition is this checkbox without function) Through click on OK-Button the MountAutomatic starts. The volume can thereafter
unmounted/mounted with a click on the appropriate button 'by hand'.

It is possible to work with several windows, in order to eject a volume several times daily, or several volumes to mount/eject. A new window is opened with File/New. By closing of the window and with program end the MountAutomatic is stopped.

In the Preferences window (menu Zeitmount/Preferences) it is possible to pre-set a volume, the partition checkbox and the times. The selected values are entered automatically with program start and when opening a new window. The checkbox 'Autostart' determines whether the MountAutomatic, when starting of the program or opening a new
window, immediately is started. You can determine whether the volume is to be unmounted immediately automatically.

Please note that the times must be entered in 24-hour format (17:00 for 5:00pm)
