I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 with Gnome-shell. In /etc/fstab i add following lines:

/dev/sda4                     /media/D        ntfs    none       0       1

When i move mouse on right bottom corner i see indicator - removable device. In this indicator i see only my real hard drive (ntfs volume). Can i remove this icon for hard drive, but stay work for removable devices?

Mount your drive at /mnt/D instead of /media/D by altering /etc/fstab and you should not see it any more.

That's more acceptable...thank you! – Christopher Kyle Horton Jan 23 '12 at 1:37
"more acceptable"? It's THE answer! ;-) – Forage Jan 23 '12 at 1:42
True, though the flag I cast is now probably going to be rejected and I'll hence be given a minor penalty for that. I think you're helped expose another reason why I think a method for canceling flags should be implemented. Still, what matters is that you fixed your post so that it actually answers the question now, and that's what I'm thanking you for. ;) – Christopher Kyle Horton Jan 23 '12 at 1:47
