Just out of interest (as I'm too lazy to look it up / try it) when you dismount something does AmigaDOS free up any buffers that were assigned to the device in a mountlist? And ones added afterwards with AddBuffers?

I think the answer might be 'yes' but thought I'd ask for definate

No. DOS Manual 1.3 and 3.1 says the device is just removed from the list, nothing freed.

Here's the readme file for a little tool to unmount devices:
Quote:
Short: Device unmounting tool (with source)
Author: Marek 'March' Szyprowski <marek@amiga.pl>
Type: disk/misc
Version: 0.1
Architecture: ppc-morphos, m68k-amigaos
Status: freeware

This is simple tool to unmount specified device. It should be considered as a
little hack, because AmigaOS does not have a clean way to completely unmount a
device and free all its resources.
However, in most cases it should work.

It has been tested with the following filesystems:
* Ext2FS (works)
* SGIXFS (works)
* NTFS (works)
* FAT95 (works)
* FFS (works)
* SFS (does not work, SFS lacks support for ACTION_DIE packet)
So I guess resources are not freed with a simple assign drive: remove

Well, I remember that assign drive: remove is NOT as powerful as assign drive: dismount! assign remove will sometimes give up, i. e. some drives won't be removed!
assign dismount (KS 2.04 + only!) can be real brutal if the user wishes so, though; even pull the rug out from under the device(s), so to speak
USE WITH CAUTION.
