OWC Releases Dock Ejector App V1.1

Updated app, now in six languages, allows users to safely disconnect devices with one click

WOODSTOCK, IL – June 25, 2019OWC®, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, has issued an update to their Dock Ejector app, a free download that safely ejects all drives connected to OWC docks with a single click. The enhanced app has been translated into six languages: German, French, Spanish, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese, allowing OWC users worldwide to more easily simplify their workflow.

Perfect for fast-paced mobile workflows, Dock Ejector removes the risk and tedium of un-docking devices one at a time. By ensuring all data has been written before any disk is unmounted, users can safely eject OWC docks without stressing over losing or fragmenting files. Dock Ejector is compatible with Mac and Windows and is an easy shortcut to use in a production studio, editing suite, office, conference space, classroom…anywhere a workstation is located.

The Mac version of Dock Ejector now also automatically installs the driver which enables the high-powered ports on OWC Docks. This driver tells the operating system which of the ports on OWC docks support faster charging for iOS devices and wireless Apple accessories (e.g. keyboard, mouse, trackpad), and also enables use of Apple SuperDrive through an OWC dock.

OWC hardware and software engineers collaborated on Dock Ejector, optimizing it for the complete line of OWC docking solutions. Award-winning OWC docks bring connectivity to any workflow and give the flexibility to grow and adapt into the future. The line includes:

  • Thunderbolt 3 Dock – 14 ports with one cable to charge, power and connect any Thunderbolt 3 equipped Mac or PC
  • USB-C Dock – reconnect devices to a USC-C equipped computer, adding 10 ports with one cable to charge and power a laptop
  • USB-C Travel Dock – 5 ports of on-the-go, bus-powered, portable connectivity, easily fits in a backpack or even a pocket

The new version of Dock Ejector adds support for the Akitio Thunder3 Dock Pro, Akitio Thunder3 RAID Station, and the upcoming OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock Pro and OWC Mercury Elite Pro Dock (available Q3 2019). Since Akitio became an OWC brand early in 2019 it has been a priority for OWC to ensure all product lines are attuned for users across the board, and the Dock Ejector app is no exception.

Dock Ejector is free to download and use. Get it today and experience the convenience and safety of one-click disconnection. Visit Dock Ejector to see just how OWC continues to create solutions that allow users to do more and reach higher.
