Utilities to work with disks on macOS

Project description

Utilities to work with disks on macOS


This library provides some functions for working with disks and mountpoints on macOS. It can enumerate block devices and look up the mount points for attached media.

The code is tested with Python 2.7 and 3.6.


My macOS API binding library rh.osx is required.


>>> import rh.osxdiskutils
>>> all_drives = rh.osxdiskutils.find_block_devices()
>>> for drive in all_drives:
...     all_media = rh.osxdiskutils.find_media(drive)
...     for media in all_media:
...         bsd_name = rh.osxdiskutils.get_bsd_name(media)
...         mount_point = rh.osxdiskutils.get_mount_point(bsd_name)
...         if mount_point:
...             print(bsd_name, mount_point)
disk1 /
disk6 /Volumes/Storage
disk8 /Volumes/Storage2
disk7 /Volumes/Storage3
