When I right-click the desktop icon for my USB drive or SD card I have the choice to "Eject" or "Safely Remove Drive":
In the Tree side pane in Nautilus, I can either "Unmount" or "Eject":
The Places side pane in Nautilus has some kind of eject icon:
What do all of these do?
Specifics I've been wondering about include:
- What happens when a drive has multiple partitions mounted?
- Under what conditions is a prompt to empty the trash displayed?
- Do any of these result in a state in which the drive cannot be mounted again without first being physically reconnected?
