I have a Time Machine drive connected to my MacBook, along with another drive which I use as external storage.  When I insert a memory card into my laptop for ingesting photos, all three drives show up.

Is there some trick I can use to tell Photo Mechanic to ignore the other drives, and not show them?

Clean up Ingest dialog?

The Ingest dialog often shows drives I never want to Ingest from. How can I permanently remove those drives from the list?

Answer: All you need to do is create a folder named: PMIngestIgnore on the root of each drive that you want Photo Mechanic?s Ingest feature to ignore. You can do this with the Finder (Mac OS X) or with Windows Explorer (Windows.). You can also create a hidden file called .PMIngestIgnore (with a dot as the first character), though some operating system settings may affect your ability to create hidden files in this manner. For example, in OS X, you might need to rename the file in Terminal.

HTH,
