    I have several external Drives Thumb Drives plugged in at all times on my computer, about 8 of them..
    Every time I boot into my version of mint the latest stable version. All my plugged in drives start up after I boot in to the oS.
    My Question is how do I stop this?
    All answers will be appreciated.

    The easy answer is to stop the auto mount on the drives.

    How you go about doing that with an external drive, I do not know. I do know that for internal drives you can change the option in the fstab file, so that it wont auto mount them. Like I said though, it may be different with external drives. Hope that helps some.
