About Mount Keeper


In the beginning of this year, we found a photographer to take some photos for my daughter’s birthday. He is a talent figure photographer and we are very satisfied with his service. He is using Mac, of course.

When he knew I am developing software on Mac, he asked me if there’s some software preventing external disk devices from mounting. He wanted to hire someone to help him on photo editing but don’t want any unauthorised copy of the photos of his clients.

I helped him searching around but couldn’t find any application meeting his requirement exactly. In the mean while, it’s an interesting requirement to me. So I decided to make one for him.

That’s how Mount Keeper came from.

Mount Keeper

This week I released the first version of Mount Keeper. It is a disk-mount-block tool integrated in the System Preferences of Mac OS X. It detects attached disk devices such as external hard disks, flash disks, or SD cards, and prevents their mount, mounts them as read-only, or lets the admin user choose, based on preferences.

Mount Keeper

The main features including:

  • Integrated in System Preferences.
  • Three options when disk device is about to mount.
  • Preferences can only be changed by admin user.
  • When “ask for choice” is chosen, authentication is required to mount a disk device.
  • Send notification when any new disk device is attached.
  • Uninstall with one button cleanly

It requires Mac OS X 10.9 or above.
