So basically turns out the bootcamp has been the reason for some proapps giving me jip recently (not sure why, the Apple team said so). So naturally I would like to find a way so I dont have to manually eject the bootcamp partition every time I log on. People round the net have talked through methods of using an "fstab" file, which didnt exist in my directory, but the method didnt work even when I made one.

Anyone got any ideas? (Im crap with automator, so if anyone can even suggest how to make a script which I set to launch on startup that's be amazing)
Thanks!

I don't use bootcamp, so I don't know where it mounts, but your script could be something as simple as:

================

#!/bin/sh
/usr/sbin/diskutil unmount /Volumes/BootCamp
exit 0

================

Put the above in a text file, save as whatever you want to call it, make it executable (chmod +x filename), then add it as a startup item.

Test if first by:
1. mounting the bootcamp volume
2. executing the script (cd to wherever you put it, then run ./filename)

Hope that helps some.
