What is xfce4-mount-plugin?

Mount plugin allows you to mount/unmount external devices, cd/dvd-rom
and networked filesystems listed in your /etc/fstab. You can specify
custom commands for the mount/unmount operations, eject cdroms, run a
command after a device has been mounted (for example, exo-open to browse
it in your file manager), and finally you can quicly see how full a
filesystem is, and if it's already mounted.
