It would be helpfull, if by default USB drives are mounted automatically with disabled updating of file timestamps (at least access timestamp). Currently enabled timestam updating leaks some time information. Usually it is not so important, but sometimes that can be an issue.


Let's research how this can be achieved, and then discuss if it seems important enough to deal with the implementation complexity on the long run.

The noatime FS-independent mount option could do the trick.


  • No such option was found on Squeeze's apps_nautilus_preferences.schemas
  • udisks does not seem to have any related setting
