I’ve posted a couple of comments already so I’ll just wrap them up with an answer and a picture:

Nautilus Eject

The first Eject button is for the Android phone.

Below that we have:

As you can see bookmarks are handy to save you a lot of clicking during drill down.

The design of Nautilus is to always show you partitions you can mount by clicking on their name. After clicking the partition name the “Eject” icon appears. Clicking “Eject” simply unmounts the partition.

If you want to hide a partition from Nautilus use the Disks application (How do I hide / remove a partition from the Nautilus left panel?). For example in the above Nautilus screen the partition /dev/sdc2 - F9m_Win7 has been hidden using the Disks application. The reason was it’s a brand new install and broken so not much point in having it appear in Nautilus.

The entire lsblk is:

sda      8:0    0 223.6G  0 disk 
├─sda1   8:1    0   100M  0 part 
├─sda2   8:2    0  69.1G  0 part 
├─sda3   8:3    0  58.6G  0 part 
└─sda4   8:4    0     1K  0 part 
sdb      8:16   0 465.8G  0 disk 
├─sdb1   8:17   0   100M  0 part 
├─sdb2   8:18   0 257.4G  0 part /media/rick/ST9_Win7
├─sdb3   8:19   0     1K  0 part 
├─sdb5   8:21   0 200.5G  0 part 
└─sdb6   8:22   0   7.9G  0 part 
sdc      8:32   0 119.2G  0 disk 
├─sdc2   8:34   0  58.6G  0 part /mnt/5824BF4E76D68BE2
├─sdc3   8:35   0  29.3G  0 part /
└─sdc4   8:36   0   7.8G  0 part [SWAP]
sr0     11:0    1 695.9M  0 rom  

In summary Nautilus gives us a nice GUI into our partitions. It’s very handy on this Laptop with three drives and many partitions.
